  • Rough seas ahead!

    This list pretty much made every compliance / risk / HR officer throw up.

    The attitude is screaming "To heck with governance!" Employees can do whatever they want now a days. Where did this entitlement attitude come from?

    I don't agree with the locked down enterprise but controls are a valuable thing. I might switch to a legal career as I sense a lot of lawsuits coming in the next few years.
  • Industry is challenging.

    Break the rule where ever the employee feels it prevents him from performing/achieving. Now a days the initiative and responsibility are to be more for an employee to be a good performer in this competitve field.
    Maturity level should get improved, is what I would say. At the same time ensure proper security is in place.
