    All managers had to actually take management lessons as part of their training
    Good work performance review process, you write your own goals and combine them with those of your manager. You can choose your own training.
    Nice and respectful people

    Overall low tech company
    Slow to make any change, very hard to improve existing processes
    Each department is run like a mini-company, they bill each other so it impedes cooperation

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive products
