What would you most like to see improved at your company?

Compensation esp after 2018, innovations

What's going wrong and how can it be improved?

The part I work in has no identity or strategy. It has been starved of resources and everyone is spread very thin, to the point of looming disaster. There is a lot of talk about building a healthier business, but no resourcing, strategy, or execution to accomplish it.
