    Unfortunately nothing comes to mind

    Cons

    -Upper management likes to yell at the employees under them if they don't do what they like.
    -Upper management will also shovel on different jobs they need done for them before a set date.
    -Upper management doesn't really know their customers.
    -Getting a raise is harder than getting into college.
    -People will take credit for your work and blame you for their failures.
    -They except you to pay for a membership out of your own pocket.
    -Upper management is always right and you are always wrong.
    -different cliques within the council, it's like being in high school.
    -revolving door for employees

    Advice to Management

    Do the jobs of your "lowest" employees. Not for an hour but a full week. Also look at all the facts before you point your finger to blame someone.
