    Cons

    Standing more or less in the same spot all day, not able to do much beyond observe and report, lots of policies are inconsistent with goals of the department. Also limited to no room to grow

    Advice to Management

    Recognize workers that have provided superb and reliable service to the company and offer them opportunities to advance instead of hiring outside. Also discontinue the seemingly popular practice of managers offering non-existent opportunities for growth.
