    Pros

    Plenty of support is available. The environment is very relaxed. The only stress would be the anticipation of getting laid off. The Carling Campus was very pretty

    Cons

    I did not find a lot of opportunities for growth. The career advancement is very limited. The laid back environment could make you lazy as well

    Advice to Management

    The management should seriously focus on improving the culture. The culture of being proactive and innovation needs to be brought back

    Information are readily assessible from intranet for work and decision working.
    Good communication network for inter-site conference and communication.

    Cons

    Lack of team spirit and each functional organisation is protecting its own territory.
    Lack of 2-way communication between senior management and lower rank staff.
    Feel powerless in wanting to make changes at work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee feedback and take action on their concerns.
    Empower lower rank staffs to make changes at work and praise them for their effort.
