    It was an overall enjoyable experience as I was allowed to develop and create my own activities

    I have been working at Callatay & Wouters

    Pros

    A family run business that works in a colaborative team effort in the development process, utilising some of the latest technologies whilst adapting older languages. They have encouraged management from within

    Cons

    The management is blinkered having come up from within. It is very much a product orientated engineering biased business with strong emphasis from Benelux with little or no localisation in the core. The marketing communications are poor with little desire to change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in some external blood with experience of larger system vendors, localise the system for the regions being targeted, encourage staff development from outside company and the family

    There needs to be more opportunties for the Singapore team to get knowledge transfer from the Belgian team
