    Medium term strategy is unclear after company went private in 2013 for second time. Sense of uncertainty increased after significant restructuring. Few in corporate staff seem to fully understand the global business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strengthen the succession plan. Restore employee motivation.

    Former Employee - Supervisor  in  Polomolok (Philippines)
    Former Employee - Supervisor in Polomolok (Philippines)

    Pros

    Easy jobs, CSR programs and employees' benefits... There were lots of programs for the employees to enjoy like family day and foundation day. The company will issue free transportation from your home to the work place, and vice versa. They provide lots of training for the employees and opportunity to travel as well to those who belong in the upper management.

    Cons

    Most managers (technical ones) in this company are not qualified for a position. They get hired because the HR division has poor recruitment skills. They tend to show-off their good organizational development skills, but taking for granted their recruitment processes.

    People working in this company are already very old. Consequence is that they tend to work not in their best because of repetition of procedures, and resistance to developmental changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the old employees (particularly the managers) with fresh and enthusiastic people.
