    Company does not get ahead of issues
    Work environment can become toxic
    Very high turnover - people don't want to stay

    Advice to Management

    Job description and actual work responsibilities are mal-aligned. There needs to be more of an effort to develop the engineering skills of employees. Management needs to open communication with technical service engineers. Technical issues need to be identified and handled in a much more timely manner. Technical Services Engineers take on too much non-engineering clerical work.
