    Pros

    1. Provides opportunity to entry level candidates
    2. Little supervision, you can pursue other goals if you have completed your objectives
    3. You can earn above the standard rates if you negotiate well or management is scared of you being poached
    4. Very relaxed environment. Semi-professional
    5. Won't be a problem finding a new job

    Cons

    1. No health insurance, no bonuses, no incentives, no allowance, etc. You may be stuck with one base for a while
    2. No training, no support. You're on you own.
    3. Some members of management are absolutely disrespectful. They think they are gods and you are their minions
    4. Management will always choose "saving money" over quality and efficiency
    5. Most employees have data cap and won't have internet once they run out
    6. The HR Deparment is not people friendly

    Advice to Management

    They may not be able to see their own faults. Company has lots of talents and opportunities going waste. They will probably need an experience external consultant with a track record to evaluate the whole company , structures and people from top to bottom. GLO needs serious revolution to be a global brand

    Pros

    Time for self study since there is no platform for training.

    Cons

    There is no health scheme
    No methodical working plan
    No visibility in the organizations goals and visions.
    Management and employees are on different side of the divide

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to strategically rethink the way business is done in the organization.
    An urgent need for employee engagement.
    There is also a need to redefine processes and procedures.
    Management doesn't have a global view of the organizations operations, the information they get is more of here say.
    Network Management is at all time low, therefore troubleshooting issues is more of guesswork.
    Training should be embarked on as a matter of urgency.
    The Organization should be more agile and flexible to the changing demands of the customer.
