Positive Work Environment?

I'm taking a fraud examination class in college, and one of the things they say that helps prevent fraud is a positive work environment. Then they provided a list of 11 things that detract from a positive work environment. My theatre has over half the things on this list, which makes me laugh at loud because it tells me something I already know. No matter how much lipstick puts on, it is still a pig.

The list, for those of you curious (bolded entries apply to my theatre)
1. Top management that does not care about or pay attention to the behavior of the employees.
2. Negative feedback or lack of recognition of job performance.
3. Percieved inequities in an organization.
4. Autocratic rather than participative management.
5. Low organizational loyalty.
6. Unreasonable budget expectations.
7. Unrealistically low pay.

8. Poor training and promotion opportunities.
9. High turnover and/ or absenteeism.
10. Lack of clear organizational responsibilities.
11. Poor communication within the organization.

God I can't wait to quit my job.

Wow.... One and a half points toward a positive work experience. This is probably why I quit last month.
I quit my job at the theater I worked at...

And now the bolded list of what applied there...

1. Top management that does not care about or pay attention to the behavior of the employees.
2. Negative feedback or lack of recognition of job performance.

3. Percieved inequities in an organization.
4. Autocratic rather than participative management.
5. Low organizational loyalty.
6. Unreasonable budget expectations.
7. Unrealistically low pay.
8. Poor training and promotion opportunities.
9. High turnover and/ or absenteeism.

10. Lack of clear organizational responsibilities.
11. Poor communication within the organization.

*sigh*
Our turnover rate is ridiculous at my theater! The concession D.L. hired so many employees to work the holidays that we have 77 concessionists.... ridiculous!

Communication is perhaps our biggest struggle. When something goes wrong in a department that affects the others, it's rarely communicated. An usher-b will start a show late and won't tell the ushers on the floor, which can put them behind in cleaning up after shows. Additionally, whenever our south satellite concession burns popcorn, it smells like projector 16 upstairs is smoking. If they never tell the UB, they're digging in the projector for fifteen minutes trying to diagnose a problem that isn't there. Even managers don't communicate to each other. It's so hard to get things done!
