    I have been working at Pharm-Olam International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Work hard here and you will be happy. Adult like attitude from most people. Upper management is nice and friendly. I would recommend this as a solid, comfortable place to work. It has what I call the 3 P's. Positive, pleasant and productive.

    Cons

    Its in greenspoint, however, that being said, the building does have security. Also, another con is that you don't work here, so that's your con I suppose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Separate Performance raises from that of a promotion.

    Pros

    Great people, decent pay, good for getting experience, and some possibilities of moving up in the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work I had seemed to never end and I would get behind so I would stay late to finish up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the motivational environment and you'll do fine.

    I worked at Pharm-Olam International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people were wonderful and the benefits were acceptable..

    Cons

    The training was lacking; the company culture pitted person against person and the compensation was less for women.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise upper management to recognize there is no company without the people and to allow some decision making to come from those who are doing the job and not just from the top down.

    Pros

    Could be a wonderful resource.

    Cons

    Management is totally uncoordinated and inconsistent. Takes 3x as long to get things done, and the end result is shoddy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a consistent strategy, implement it, and stick to it.

    I have been working at Pharm-Olam International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, pleasant office location, set in leafy parkland grounds of a former grand house between Bracknell and Ascot.

    Cons

    training is considered a benefit and not a necassity. You are expected to train in your own time. This is an unusual approach, and this company policy on training is not made apparent at interview, but any training you are given will be done in your own time. If you are prepared for this, you'll enjoy working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Real flexi-time would be better than the current half flexible, half set-in-stone working hours currently offered.
    Many employees have children and more flexibility is needed, including a more acceptable working from home policy.
