    Pros

    Exposure to new and emerging technologies. Vendor specific training

    Cons

    Too much is expected from individuals, it's a do more with less culture. Therefore quality of work output is not up to standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more training. Proper definition of roles needed as current roles are too cross functional not allowing staff to perform at their maximum potential.

    Communication sector is a good sector to work for and the company has a nimble footed management
