    Advice to Management

    Fear stifles good ideas from being shared.
    A genius working for JPMC would retire an associate.
    Don't hire the disabled to do jobs their disabilities prevent them from succeeding at.
    Fear has turned the organization into a bunch of "yes men".
    Have an open door for things other than compliance issues.
    Your people really only cares about their bonuses.
    Being a senior manager doesn't mean your ideas are good by definition.
