Support from Management

No leadership or direction whatsoever ... very poor management-staff interactions.

Work-Life Balance

Average working week -- 70-80 hours, with compensation for 40-hours. Very exhausting in the long-term.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Implement a two-way dialogue between management and staff. Have the managers actually listen to staff suggestions/complaints. Enforce sensible work-hours and schedules. Long 70-80 hour per week schedules cannot be maintained over the long term.
