    Advice to Management

    Stop beating up the field personnel. They need motivation. The morale is so beat down. You cant win without the supoort of your team......you need to think about that.

    Small teams, giving you exposure to a lot of areas. Flexibility within work.

    Cons

    Small teams meant you were expected to do everything while the managers played computer games, golf, listened to music, and pretended to manage you when their boss would come by.

    Advice to Management
