    Some difficult people to work with that seem to keep their job despite not meeting their targets and difficult to put in complaints about them
    Not all deals are paid on and difficult to find out which ones go live

    Advice to Management

    Don’t let people get away with bringing the office down and make people feel bad for wanting to do something about it formally
