Advice to Management

Nobody's perfect, including you. Listen to employees and accept constructive feedback on how to motivate employees and develop better management skills. Upper management is arrow-minded.

    Low retention rate, people leave frequently.
    No annual raise unless you are promoted.
    Year end bonus based on how much your manager likes you.
