    Pros

    if you're prepared to work like a dog you can definitely go places. there's plenty of flexibiity on hours too but you need to be disciplined.

    Cons

    work-life balance is almost non existent and it feels as if the organisation is purely scorecard driven now - nothing else matters apart from metrics

    Advice to Management

    place less emphasis on the scorecard and listen more to the feedback from employees who actually care about the state of the organisation.
