It ruins the attitudes of good people. they run the operation entirely too thin to actually service your clients unless you happen to have the client they want at that point in time. this puts everyone under constant stress even when there aren't other problems. the constant "where is my material?" calls eat up half of everyone from shipping to management's days. if you like xanax or other psychotropic drugs it might be a good ft for you, though. you will need them and most likely you'll have an ulcer within 6 months.
