Advice to Management

Manage more than one layer below you. Understand all levels of your employees to see what's truly happening. Throughout my time there, I was amazed at how little upper management truly knew about employees beyond their direct reports. This created a culture of employees being "afraid" to speak out in any way against their direct managers. You lose a lot of great employees this way.
