    Bureaucracy and red tape amongst departments, micro-management, mid-level managers who lack management training, focus on cost-cutting techniques instead of growth from within, overlapping job functions, technologically challenged at times which can be disappointing, nepotism

    Advice to Management

    The best asset is it's people. Embrace original thoughts and ideas. Equally recognize the value of a loyal longterm employees over the shortterm urgency of contractors. Please pay attention to employee morale and institute a true promotion process to reward the employee otherwise any review process is ineffective.
