    Great co-workers. In the regional office setting, there is a sense of family among co-workers. It is the people that really drive the heart of the company.

    Unclear or partially obfuscate communication from corporate management. Big ideas and promoting upcoming transitions, but the process of said transitions is jarring, confusing, or unclear.

    Advice to Management

    When possible, over communicate to the team. Explain company direction and desires. Otherwise rumors start and schisms of loyalty occur.
