    Pros

    You can help people that want your help.

    Cons

    Managers have no care or concern for others.

    Advice to Management

    The managers have favorites and those favorites​ get acknowledged, while others whom perform as well go unnoticed. One manager only speaks to you if you are a top performer. The director nevers gives you eye contact. The director has favorite teams and only acknowledge those teams she has a close connection with the manager.. Upper management looks down on the employees.
