    Advice to Management

    Don't hire engineers fresh out of college and expect them to excel in a corporate environment when they have little to no field experience or corporate office training and development. Empower them and train them so they can work more efficiently on their own, instead of always having to go through their corporate engineering manager.

    Also, don't hire engineers out of college and expect them to be technical writers - that's a headache for everyone. Engineers who've been working for 10 years probably can write much better because they have seen more real-world technical documentation while working.

    The department would have gotten more projects completed if management had not tried to micro-manage the engineers to the point they are reduced to administrators. There was no support or trust from management to allow the engineers to work as they see fit.

    Also, as an equipment engineer group, you should train your engineers to be able to run any piece of equipment as well as analyze for improvements. Keeping them in the corporate office and having to rely on phone calls to districts helps absolutely no one. Let them travel and experience the equipment they are supposed to be setting standards for.
