    I worked at ANSA McAL Group of Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, relatively flat management structure, available cheap household goods for staff, and theoretically good review structure, overall easy place to work

    Cons

    Limited work life balance, management does not consider employees when making decisions, strict command and control structure from headquarters, no training to allow upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be more transparent with decisions made that affect employees. Profits are not always more important than people for the long term health of the company

    "Some bad apples can spoil the whole bunch" Management needs to graduate to leadership, and lead by example. Make the core values mean more than just words on a website.
    Diminish double standards, hypocrisy, and inequity. Treat your people MUCH better.
