Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep being honest to employees about the future of their jobs. Once we heard USA was no longer going to bid on new projects, that seemed to be a clue to start looking for new jobs. I wish management would try to evolve USA into other areas. This would possibly save the doomed but good company and save thousands of good jobs.

    Too much paperwork. Sometimes it takes way too long get a project completed. Too many stakeholders. The design process is way too cumbersome and lengthy.
