    The is no cooperation between individuals or teams, everyone is miserable all the time. While there are politics everywhere, at this place you spend 1/3 if your day doing work and 2/3 watching over your shoulder. Systems are antiquated and nobody can answer a simple question

    Upgrade to systems from this century. Be aware that your middle managers are not growing or encouraging their people
