Advice to ManagementAdvice

Female minorities work just as hard (or even harder at times) as the male majorities... Recognition should be genuine and true to that persons ability. IF "People" is no.1 of the 4P's, it shouldn't takes years & years of proving yourself in order to advance in a company proclaiming to maintain "Employer of Choice". Tell the truth, no matter what; brown-nosing is a dis-ease. New building does not equal happy employees.
