    Pros

    A ton of opportunities to move up within the company if you have the drive to do so. Good tools for managers to do their jobs correctly.

    Cons

    On contracts where it was shared (Between FLIK and Eurest) there was a power struggle between the two management teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer opportunities to the employees and ensure there is proper training and development for the people who would like to move up.
