    Pros

    The pay is well and veteran workers with job knowledge ,experience makes them vital for they have the ability to get the job completed even under adverse conditions that is what makes them a more professional employee.

    Cons

    BIASED, more experienced workers being overlooked because of personal relations personal opinion unjust reprimands without being investigated fairly based of personal feelings lack of leadership experience also no employee appreciation at all .

    Advice to Management

    Get to KNOW your employees do Not always trust the biased opinions of lower management .WE appreciate the fact you acquired Welltech safety .If you made surprise visits to the refineries unescorted without certain management you would receive HONEST opinion of the workers in the field with employees that feel like they matter They will take more pride and professionalism in their job morale will improve .Therefore revenue will increase and your more experienced employees will stay..But you still have a lot of the same practices that are continuing and they will continue unless you make some changes we will more then likely continue to loose vital contracts..

    Pros

    Defence contractor. Ideal workplace and enjoy my work colleagues. Close to home so the commute is not stressful. Works hours are early start, early finish.

    Cons

    Still performing maintenance with an archaic hard copy system. I don't think centralising a lot of administration or out sourcing information technologies positions is working.

    Advice to Management

    Technologically they need to move into this millennia. Some staff are not being fully utilised and some staff are not even given enough work and responsibilities to keep them busy.
