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.

    change is the norm, it is a challenge to get everyone on the same page, requiring strong influence and impact skill , great communication and relationship building skill.
