    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Open communciation between upper management and other employees

    Uncertain of company real performance and issues. Sometimes the actions do not reflect what the reports show.

    Pros

    good people to work with and an excellent atmosphere. the place has alot to offer as far as potential growth and promotion.

    in some ways the outline of duties is somewhat vague. it would be better to have more deadline dates and a structured view of what the potential is that they intend for you to become within the company to strive for.

    specific promotion intentions to individuals to maintain motivation. maintain crosstraining as well. it helps keep the job interest higher than most.
