    Pros

    There are quite a few good people that work here, which makes a nice working enviornment

    The company in large is significantly understaffed for the amount of work to be done, and under funded. Content threat of being laid off is the top motivator for upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Need to change the mentality from "how can I lay off people to make the numbers" to "how can I keep the talent from quitting, so we can make the numbers"
