    Young and enthusiastic team - Knowledgeable contractors - Nothing else

    Cons

    *Mid level management always under pressure
    *Lack of long term strategy
    *Weak development support for graduates and junior engineers
    *No human interaction between management and consultants - It's purely about profit

    Advice to Management

    *Top level management needs to allocate more resources into planning long term strategy and spend more on mid level management man power and support

    * A sinking ship as long as the only goal is to make profit without sustainable growth strategy in mind
