    Advice to Management

    Stop restructuring it won't solve your problems. Listen to your employees, start tackling issues head on and making real, tangible improvements.
    Value and reward existing and loyal employees. Currently, new starters can command higher salaries than existing employees with vast experience. No obvious and fair pay structure. Often people doing the same role with same job demands with huge differences in pay.
