Pros

Plenty of job opportunites to avail of within the company. Not necessary to constantly stick to the same role.

Cons

Very difficult to progress upwards. If you're working in an area that isn't recognised then you won't be recognised. It seems the only solution is to find somewhere else to work.

    Pros

    allows for flexibility in how time is worked

    Cons

    no salary increases, want you to exceed 60hr/wk to maintain targets and yet somehow maintain work /life balance

    Advice to Management

    You are painting everyone with the same brush, a single work oriented person can work 24 hours a day, but a parent of young children cannot be pushed that hard and still be able to enjoy thier family

  2. A Gradual erosion of employee morale
