    Constant criticism by project managers, etc. Who are completely clueless as to how the work is done. Always told the job is taking too long, cost too much, etc. Due to the project managers inability to estimate accurately.

    The leadership lies if it suits them. They all cover each other and the worker always is the one at fault. If a worker complains he will be terminated or pushed out. They also don't appreciate good work. High turnover of staff due to completely incompetent leadership up to management positions.
