    Pros

    I have worked for the company for 3 months. It is growing at such a rate, for the right people the opportunities for career development are unrivalled. There is significant investment currently being made both in technologies and people.

    If you are willing to contribute your ideas and hard work to a developing company and shape its future culture, it’s the right job for you.

    Cons

    Would not suit people who do not like change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with your policy to invest in leadership and people.

    Pros

    Good people get recognised and do well
    Flexible company
    Care about customers
    If you fit in its a good atmosphere
    Being a large family business is quite unique

    Cons

    Sink or swim, limited training
    Silos in the business are a pain to navigate
    Fear culture in half of the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tackle the silos, it upsets staff and looses customers

    Train people! Sink or swim is a stupid business strategy

    Reward people, sales do OK but reward other areas of the business because they work real hard
