    Pros

    staff are really friendly and are involved in making you feel settled at the firm as you learn the ropes. The work makes you feel like you are adding value to the firm.

    Cons

    It is dated. Many of the staff have worked many years there and as a result fresh blood is hard to find. This also results in old school techniques.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to conduct employee reviews to find out where to improve. Also, have training on technology as well as team building exercises.

    Good work life balance, friendly environment, interesting work, company show an interest in the welfare - financial and health - of their employees.

    Cons

    Out of date IT resources, the company does not maximise the benefits IT can bring to enhance and facilitate better communication within the company and between offices.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in IT and telecommunications used by employees to facilitate improved communications and improved business relationships.

    Pros

    The flexibility and the reason that you work for your salary, if you don't put in 100% you will most probably go home with almost or no salary for that specific month

    Cons

    The commission split between yourself and the company at times is not well balanced out.

    Advice to Management

    Guide and look after your employees and you will most definitely get the best results from them
