Team work is non existent Management style allows for to much freedom and to little guidance Bureaucracy creates confusion and strenuous work environments for all employees due to conflicting requirements placed on to departments Deadlines/ Schedules are seldom to never met Responsibilities are not enforced and monitored resulting in certain individuals being over burdened with departmental slack Benefits are over monitored to such an extent that a benefit becomes a burden Promises are never kept
