    Pros

    Tries to do the right things. No e-mails after 5pm or on weekends, so truly values some work/life balance. Generally nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Leaders who don't have basic interpersonal skills. Systems are outdated and no culture of data quality. Business is subservient to the sales teams. Business practices tend to be behind the times and this is a result of a culture that promotes heavily from within, resulting in management this is either resistant to change or doesn't know what it doesn't know.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of meetings and go talk to your people, even casually. It shows you care!
