    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Cable & Wireless Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to new and emerging technologies. Vendor specific training

    Cons

    Too much is expected from individuals, it's a do more with less culture. Therefore quality of work output is not up to standard.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training. Proper definition of roles needed as current roles are too cross functional not allowing staff to perform at their maximum potential.
