    Helping improve the lives of the people in Afghanistan and Haiti. Communicating with people from other countries.

    Lack of information sharing. CEO thinks he knows everything. All major and some minor decisions are made by the CEO and to a lesser extent the CFO. They use a top down management style. Scared to use new technology.

    Authoritative environment where your big boss can fire you for no reason. No job security.

    A merit based hiring and incentive system should be in place along with a system that gives employees a sense of job security. A no job security environment can harm employees performance.
