    Poor management. Zero communication with staff. No work life balance. Difficult to get annual leave authorised. Products are terrible, no spares. Constant lies to customer. Layers and layers of Admin for even the most simple task. Management bully staff into overtime and shift cover. Terrible morale, obvious by all the recent departure of skilled staff.
