    Advice to Management

    We had quarterly meetings but there were never any expectations set. Management is spread too thin to be able to do their job and actually manage the people under them. Delegate more work to support and manage don't just assign random tasks to keep people busy. You have to find people's strengths and weaknesses in order to make your department succeed.
