    - Work/life balance is a concept nobody in management knows

    Advice to Management

    Short sighted strategy always looking to make numbers for the quarter and very poor long term planning and vision. Excessively arrogant management, this attitude is now being crushed by hard working and quality oriented management from foreign competitors (very similar story to GM).
