Pros

Group of company on the way of cultural and technology change, improving communication tool and IT equipments.

Cons

High amount of hiring in a short period, hence you do not know who is the person turned up beside you. HR process is a huge lag and no communication from HR to the employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Operations, Engineering, IT and plenty division are having significant improvement however HR process still a mess, internal communication breakdown, no brand building internal nor external. Still too much work yet not enough manpower to complete, stretching all employees limit. Management should look much closer to individual employee's duties and responsibilities as we need someone to share the workload but not a one person doing several positions job.

    Pros

    - Good market opportunities to grow company
    - Multiple top notch customers with unbelievable patience
    - Many employees with long tenure

    Cons

    - Senior management team in London that does not have a proper level of understanding the business or the market, leading to misguided and unfortunate pursuits, actions and outcomes
    - Really need to improve morale and strengthen management in the Asian factories
    - Poor product quality and manufacturing processes
    - Blaming Customers for Company's own internal issues and re-writing history
    - "The story" always taking precedence over fixing the real issues
    - Lack of investment in key fixes and constant cutting and "re-alignment" of budget items including people's pay, delaying promotions and not giving rises or bonuses whilst providing for other lesser important things financially
    - Best talent exodus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go interview the customers and then re-engineer the management team, bring back good executive leadership and not fritter away what opportunities remain for this 130+ year old company. It is not yet too late though drawing nearer.
