    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the older, experienced employees that you have. Stop being so slavishly (and selectively) devoted to LAGS (Local Authority Global Strength) when you have to resort to laying off employees in one country, only to hire replacements in another. With today's technology, there is no need for that. Do not try to back out of severance commitments, as you did with US salaried employees recently laid off so they could be replaced by workers in Mexico. Many employees in both the US and Mexico know how you tried to change the severance rules after the fact, hurting the credibility and trust level that you once enjoyed.
