    Cons

    Opportunity for professional development sometimes limited by training budgets Flat management structure makes opportunity for promotion few and far between Performance reviews highly subjective and handled inconsistently from one manager to another Hard to move around internally from one department to another as it is easy to be blocked by your current manager Slumping Oil prices have negatively impacted business and they have been cutting a lot of jobs lately

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the professional development of your employees. Salaries and benefits somewhat below what the top companies are offering
