Management does a poor job of communication. Poor or lack of end of year review system. Terrible bonuses & annual raises. Lack of diversity. Very difficult move up in the ranks.

Treat the employees right and you will get more out of them. Many people are underpaid and slack off in the office as a result. Low morale.
