    I have been working at UMW full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Networking is important in many areas, its a place where people worked over a decade or ever 2. some has even reach 3-4 decades and has never changed jobs since

    Cons

    working with decades of experience people require more PR skills and tactful mind.

    Advice to Management

    positive movement towards improvement is correct, diversification of work is equally important. Over-delegation of tasks to various employees will only bring down the effectiveness of certain objectives.
