Chronic staff shortages affecting the department I am in... immediate supervisor is not helpful in providing resources/knowledge in a timely manner to help us do our jobs properly. Manager is largely invisible - does not meet with staff since appointing a supervisor, and does not appear to be aware of, or perhaps is disinterested in what is going on on 'the front line'. An up-to-date, complete knowledge base is urgently needed, but after three years of promises that it would be brought up to standard, no improvement at all has occurred.
That being said, team members are very pleasant to work with and deserve a medal for functioning at the level they are given the circumstances.
Great team work from peers
Poor support from lower (and possibly) upper management
