-Traveling: There can be a lot of travel. In fact up to 90% travel should be expected.
-Long hours: Some projects are can be short but require the most of your time while you are there.
-Demanding: Some projects are augments and require you to support what is in place or planned. Other projects require you do the job from a - z and put your best effort first.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Management shares overall company direction and invites constructive input from everyone. I have found them to be available most of the time and willing to listen. My Advice? Keep that 'open door' policy in place. Not everyone feels comfortable going to the Group Manager or Director but it's good that avenue is available should the need arise.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
