    Since upper management change in 2015, the company is only looking at the bottom line rather than the contributing factors or root causes.
    Mass layoffs and outsourcing are causing a steady decline in customer and worker satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the intelligent, mature workers who are there to actually get the work done and clean house of the ones who don't work and only cause problems.
    Promote people based on their abilities rather than based on their popularity.
