The expectation is 24x7 on-call work, with little appreciation.
Support from Management
Opinions of associates are often ignored.
Pressure from senior managers is to work 10+ hours during the day and unlimited off hours for 24x7 factory support.
Suggestions for improvement
- Be realistic with implementation plans and projects. Don't threaten staff because of unrealistic deadlines. Expect 40 hour work weeks and realize that projects may delayed because staff can't work 50-60 hour weeks with unpaid overtime, indefinitely.
