    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Review processes for inefficiency, like redundancy, inconsistency, and tribal knowledge. Review partnership operational benefits to create more value. Drive culture of accountability.

    Pros

    Working in Services is great because of the people you work with, they are all excellent.

    Cons

    The fact that we hire people and immediately throw them into the fire with minimal training is ludicrous. If we train them properly, and not just on how to do their time sheets, it would lighten the load for the rest of the team where they are assigned.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the 6 week training program from a few years ago. Online training is nice for refresher courses but can'take replace classroom discussion and hands-on experience with the software.

    Pros

    Reasonable Salaries and Reasonable Hours

    Cons

    Very political. Bullying is common. Priority given to avoiding liquidated damages over all other considerations.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor familial and friend relationships between upper management and staff. Upper management should not vacation or be best friends with subordinates or those they work closely with. Managers should not directly or indirectly manage family members.

    Pros

    Not many anymore. The company used to take care of its people, but has shown a lack of consideration for production employees.

    Lack of caring for production employees. Very unorganized when it comes to management, logistics, quality, and so much more.
