    Hire more (competent) people to catch up with company growth; commit to an overall advancement/growth/promotion plan for individuals outlining reasonable expectations; shift from RSU compensation to higher take-home pay; go back to quarterly bonuses; hold departments/managers more accountable for communication, staff training, and overall performance.

    Pros

    Benefits are The only reason why the underdogs stay. Bonuses are after taxes & they've just made them harder to get with a point system. Don't get sucked in.

    Cons

    Clicky snobs will do fine as they are the only ones pre-selected for coddling and promotions. The rest will Never receive additional experience to move up so they will be passed over for promotions and will absolutely be laid off once they've wrung you out. Those who remain buy the nicest clothes and will drown on exhausted, understaffed, "scalable" teams.

    Advice to Management

    It's not even worth leaving any advice any to these people because they use all the buzz words while continually abiding by immoral favoritism which ultimately advances their own success so it won't stop. All who've tried to speak up have been met with a united front of blank stares and feigned ignorance.
