    Pros

    Nice friendly environment, like working in a one big family.

    Uninspiring prospect for either promotion or self development. Financial remuneration not really competitive. Going through a period of uncertainty due to a recent takeover may be demoralising.

    Advice to Management

    The new management needs to engage the staffs more frequently and closely to rid them off negative and incorrect assumptions about the future direction of the company.
