Pros

The salary and benefits offered are very generous and are very easily accessible to all levels. Internal promotion is relatively simple at lower skill levels and this quickly corresponds to increased wages.

Cons

Very slow at change and innovation, the company is very behind in terms of IT systems, banking systems and more importantly at attitude towards the customer. There is a very imminent presence of Senior level slogans that do not materialise in employee eyes. Operations are too widely dispersed, approaching diseconomies of scale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of promoting meaningless slogans seek to get it right for the customer, this will bring you most business. Change the focus away from cost reduction but more towards revenue maximisation - by definition this is more expansive and will prevent losing skilled employees and outsourcing operations that should be domestic.

    Pros

    there were extra activities outside the work place that led to knowing more about the environment around us creating awareness.

    Cons

    concentration of alot of power to some individuals which sometimes made the working environment abit frustrating because that powerled to the whims of some individuals being met, some of which were ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To open more lines of communication with staff to get more feedback and directly consult with groundstaff.
