    Set more realistic expectations for each job so that client reports may be generated timely. Don't expect employees to give up most of their free time for report writing, unless you want burnt out employees.

    Pros

    Good banter of workers in office
    Wonderful coworkers
    Great benefits
    Interesting work
    I'm filling up space here since I'm having a hard time thinking of what else

    Cons

    Management is rude, dismissive, and headless. There's no direction or initiative to invest in their employees. The extra star is only for the office. Consistently understaffed and overworked. Just because your staff can provide results doesn't mean it's sustainable in the long term to pile so much work onto them. If could keep the job but double the number of my team, and never need to speak to management again, this would be the perfect job for me. I could not, and thus I did not.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in employee training (not just orientation, but team specific training) and invest more in employees in general. Instructions for front line management on proper emotional intelligence and management skills would be a boon to all. Realize that work from overworked employees result in higher burnout and turnover.
