    Pros

    Akzo Nobel is a very fair company to its employees and the pay is much better than the average income for same work.

    Cons

    Communication is not the best (informing all employees of various changes that might affect them).

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better rather than the 'everything is a secret' when it affects peoples careers.
