Management is often disorganized --they will often schedule poorly then not apologize. They require a huge number of inconvenient meetings for various reasons and often do not consider that these pry into family times at home. Many managers are not trustworthy about keeping promises yet they have pretty high expectations from their staff. Very little room for upward mobility since the place runs on part-time help.
