    Pros

    Goals and expectations are well established. I understand very well what my responsibilities are and what is expected of me.

    Communication between shifts and groups is difficult sometimes. There is not a lot of cross over between groups and this sometimes leads to bad decisions, or miscommunication.

    Advice to Management

    Establish more standard procedures. Document practices, procedures and knowledge more thoroughly to ensure other employees can benefit from previously gained knowledge.
