    -Archaic financial software and terrible staff management techniques.
    -Penny wise and dollar foolish.
    -Iraqi owned and they have their hand in the company's pocket which sucks them dry - company suffering.
    -Forced to use Iraqi services to complete technical work.
    -Amazing amount of time out on the road required by this company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and promote a team atmosphere as opposed to making people feel like they have to fight among themselves to get their job done in a timely manner. You're stretched too thin and therefore your people feel the same pinch. This reflects in how your customer is treated by your employees.

    - If you want to retain talent, you should be willing to invest the right amount of time and effort into grooming that talent.

    - There should be a thorough Trainee development programme that not only equips new talent with the tools to succeed in the game but also develops a sense of purpose and loyalty towards the company.
