    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring more people and raising income levels to keep people around.
    Don't claim you're a "talent factory" in order to retain talent. A "factory" implies that you're taking raw goods and forming it into finished goods to leave said factory. If that's your intent then change your slogan, it leaves a bad taste for your employees and makes them feel less valued and more like a product.
    You're a good company and well known, but you don't play on that strength as much as you should.
    Start generating a plan around work/life balance otherwise you will continue to run the risk of people leaving for better opportunities.
