    Very Poor

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosmaybe the CEO and some of the new strategy

    ConsVery low level management. You can unzerstand a bit because of transformation, but this level of confusion, no leadership, no information given, and very very silo mentality. Finance keep losing managers, IT transformation is disaster with all confused, HR do not help. Bad.

    Advice to Senior Managementshould share vision (if they have one) and communicate. remember leadership as example not saying one thing in public meetings and then do the contrary

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    - Work life balance - 9am to 17.30 pm, most people do not work any extra hours
    - Very achievable personal targets

    Cons- Little understanding of the industry, especially of the online
    - Top down decision making only
    - Slow, process driven, too many layers
    - Politics and speed (lack of it), tends to be really impacting all part of the business

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
