the company is populated with people that have worked there for years and have too many legacy attitudes that come from a job-for-life mentality. The long term employees are bad for growth insofar as they don't have an appetite to work hard and get the job done and rely on "that's not how we have done things" where as a more dynamic and progressive attitude is now needed.
