Good experience at badly managed company

Senior Process Engineer (Former Employee)
Johannesburg (South Africa)

ProsVery good technical experience gained at the company.

ConsCompany stuck in old ways with no new inovations. Management reluctant to see that employees are unhappy. Midrand office located in a very unpleasant and unsafe location.

Advice to Senior ManagementEngage with and listen to your people - you sell manhours. Without experienced professional employees, there is no business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
