    - Frequent moves, which is hard on families
    - Broken evaluation system that breeds cut throat politics
    - Broken recognition system of awards
    - Pointless regulations

    Decentralize more control to your small unit leaders and managers. Stop with regulations solely designed to save your career. Allow for flexibility and freedom of lower level managers. Be responsive to the needs of your employees.
