Support from Management

Managers made it clear to fear for your job and that you were always replaceable.

Gender Equality

Management is all men; a lot of politics and undeserved promotions/new-hires

Career Development

Many entry level employees promised quick promotion after reaching specific goals. Even after goals were reached an interview was never offered. They could do better with employee morale in this area; resulting in better quality work results
