There's no effort to get me involved to ensure what was proposed are done correctly Really dislike current sitting arrangement, in a high traffic area. More interruptions (intended or unintended, directly and indirectly) a mono tasker, like to focus on one thing at a time and will not sacrifice quality for the sake of keeping it on time
