    Pros

    The division I work in is doing well in spite of the economy. Other divisions should do well when the economy turns around.

    Cons

    Would like a better retirement package, but cutting out pensions in the private sector is the norm.

    Current upper management is headed in the right direction.

    I worked at Parkson Corporation

    Pros

    Overall, Parkson was a good place to work with competent management and extremely fair and ethical business practices. Employees were treated very fairly with a good work-life balance.
    Benefits and employee programs were generous and administered fairly.

    Cons

    The company's main challenge is growing its business with an extremely conservative outlook toward business risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, the company needs to expand and modernize its portfolio of products and technologies which requires a more aggressive an pro-active approach toward taking and managing business risk. As the saying goes: no risk - no reward.

    I worked at Parkson Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Privately owned, so have the flexibility to try new things. Owner extremely dedicated to company and environmental issues. Owner committed to supplying the necessary capital requested by upper management to grow the company.

    Cons

    High employee turn over rate. Many reorganizations. Hire a lot of executives that are not familiar with the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a point to compliment employees on their strengths and accomplishments, rather than just criticizing them for mistakes. Allow more opinions from field service and outside sales on the directions the company should be heading.
