    Cons

    CEO, CFO, VP and Upper management are discontented from middle and lower management and staff personnel. On-site visits are rehearsed, political, and disingenuous. High turnover, low morale, and no promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in your number one assets "employees". Perform focus group with CEO and CFO and middle and low staff management personnel. It will be an open opener for Lou!!
