    A company to learn and to grow within

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsProactivity and committment are valued very well. Basically, one may take as much responsibility as he/she would like to bear and get a chance to prove yourself. In case of a success, compensation would follow

    ConsSometimes did extremely bad when it comes to recruiting middle management. Therefore, focus of people at this level was fluctuating from real hands-on business development to politics. Never helps an organization

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire the right people

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It used to be a good company

    Programmer (Former Employee) Moscow (Russia)

    ProsGood work/ life balance. Flexible schedule allow to attend children's school functions, etc. Site management cared about the well-being of all employees.

    ConsBritish management with "live at work" management style. Changed to Russian owned company with strict schedule, constrained budget and centralised management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Internal Audit

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBroad vision on the company's business.
    Dynamic environment.
    Lots of very smart people to work with.

    ConsTough working hours.
    Little internal promotion oportunities.
    Pretty often costs are not properly accounted for.
    Too many pooprly qualified & experienced expats hired with way too high salaries & benefits.
    The firm has almost broke apart and will not be anu close to mid-2000's success.

    Poor Country Leadership in Nigeria

    Vice President - Sales Trading (Former Employee) Lagos (Nigeria)

    ProsExcellent colleagues (when you are in good terms with them), International opportunities, Excellent office technology,

    ConsPoor Country Management, Low employee morale in support roles, Top heavy environment, Lack of strategy or focus in performance manager systems for Regional and Country Leads, Poor country leadership structure, Poor pay and poor L&D systems in African markets especially Nigeria, No staff retention or rehiring systems for ex staff

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people with low cost base, Desist from hiring CEOs who fly every week on company bills, Hire people who know the market as Regional CEOs, Fire every high paying front office MDs or Directors including Country CEOs not having direct revenue impact on the business. Stop discrimination in salaries. Employ diversity in regional desk head appointments

    Great pay, but you earn it - long hours (12+ per day) and volatile - they tend to overhire so keep having to fire

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEverything tends to work - IT is excellent, back office people are very good. Pay is way above what you get elsewhere.

    ConsVolatility but that might change now that management has changed

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess gung ho approach might be better. No need to pay people double elsewhere - 20-30% would do.
