“Complet Autocratic Management System with little implementation of structure. Could be a highly succesful venture”
Pros – Mission of this company is worth working for; Specialised field; If managed correctly, great opportunity to develop technical skills and contribute.
Cons – Very bad /poor management structure, especially in Paarl, which cost the company a lot of employees. Bad politics between upper management.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
