    Pros

    Travel perks, great destination network, trusted international brand, training facilities, decent company provided accommodation with utilities, transport to/from work.

    Cons

    Rosters are very busy, 1am curfew for day visitors in company accommodation, 1 year UNPAID maternity leave (no chance of finding ground duties), not easy for staff to move to internal vacancies in other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Develop/promote your existing staff further (i.e across departments, internal vacancies).
    Work/life balance in respect of crew needs to be addressed.
    Your staff are adults - remove the 1am curfew in accommodation.

    Pros

    - Excellent growth during my tenure
    - Very good adaptability to changing industrial and technological trends
    - Excellent foresight backed by aggressive expansion plans not foreseen by competitors in the core market

    Cons

    - Wavering Strategies, not consistent over a period of time for staff in some departments to settle in
    - Some strategic decisions are tactical and based on knee-jerk reactions
    - Silo approach by key departments, not willing to share strategic and operational information at an organisational level
    - Permanent staff that served for a long period are being overlooked for promotions or retrenched, with a sudden influx of new joiners in certain departments at higher positions than existing staff, thus creating an emotional and professional (gained based on the company's growth from inception) imbalance

    Advice to Management

    - Long time planning and strategies should not waver from the original conceived path too frequently that shakes up the employers
    - Stop decisions based on knee-jerk reactions. Mull over more in a strategic and tactical manner to combat and defuse the effect of sudden unforeseen circumstances or challenging events
    - Offer a steady growth path, incentives and benefits to staff, without them having to indulge in planned organisational human networking and creating visibility and spotlight situations at the expense of concrete contribution to organisational growth.
