    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits, beautiful workplace HQ, competent co-workers

    Cons

    Overly bureaucratic when it is not necessary, too politically driven at top, way too constrained in non-effective ways by Central Procurement Office and Internal Audit

    New CEO yet to be proven effective

    Advice to Management

    Stand up more for middle to lower staff, Commissioners need to focus on what is good for Port not just their careers and political aspirations
