Some of the upper level managers, directors, and VPs, have different visions and conflicting goals for the organization, thus creating a lack of direction sometimes. Some people in managerial or director positions don't have any management or HR training and don't know how to properly manage staff. If you were in academics you might get burned out quickly.
Advice to Management
