    Streamline and strengthen processes

    Pros

    Govt job security and permanent

    Cons

    No manners among senior management, they know nothing about technical skills but are managing technical people. Rude behavior and no specific roles assigned to officers. Management just want status even though they know nothing about the things going on ground level. Most of the things under vendors.
    They have online app to apply leaves but management want to write a hand-written letter

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating technical officials like slaves. Remove the unnecessary hierarchy of non technical people who just come and ask whats going on, whats the status, and what should they tell above and still ruling over technical officials. Work is being done by technical officials only
