    I have been working at Advanced full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I have a very detailed view of my role, accountability and deliverables and understand how the compliment our company values and objectives. I have an excellent leader who consistently demonstrates role model behaviour. I work alongside industry specialists, all expert in their fields. My contributions are recognised and rewarded. I am in a role where `I feel valued and I feel like I am positively contributing to...

    Cons

    My role requires a lot of flexibility to accommodate business needs on a international scale. This at times can make work life balance difficult but I am fully supported with business flexibility and my efforts are always recongnised and appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, keep communicating change to your staff and continue to keep us motivated with the schemes and incentives you have already established for us.

    I have been working at Advanced full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Small paycheck....like 40% less than I made 10 years ago small with a six-fold increase in job duties in my time here.

    Cons

    You know it's bad when Indian staff being outsourced to is giving bad reviews! Hard to find a new job after Advanced because your skills and achievements won't look good on paper...very hard to achieve and show any success in this environment. Most staff have a check to box mentality after Vista, and I can not count the number of times I've been told by a graduate or HPEL that they are only doing what they are told...

    I worked at Advanced full-time

    Pros

    Some very good people - very competent technically and in their understanding of implementing solutions. Many have been there for their entire careers and know the product set inside out. Salaries are ok.

    Cons

    Too many - just a dreadful working environment. Culture of antagonism and mistrust between employees and senior management. Employees constantly looking over their shoulder and bullied into accepting working practices.

    Advice to Management

    Advanced management will not listen to any advice. Like many organisations they are exclusively interested in shareholder value and directors remunerations.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Advanced full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      I enjoy working with numbers and am a "people: person". Love learning and having positive feedback/reinforcement.

      Cons

      Management did not provide positive feedback, was left on my own to learn a new job that was extremely complex. I learned on my own.

      Advice to Management

      Take better care of your employees, they are what make your agency run more efficiently and feel appreciated.

        I worked at Advanced full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Colleagues (not including management) Good location within the Mailbox Free tea and coffee Decent salary for entry level positions

        Cons

        No real progression here as they tell you they will 'Do the right thing' by stagnating you in a position for too long and then promote you to a role you may not want but they have a 'vision' for you! Too many people in the business cover their own back so nothing moves forward, takes 1 week to get a yes/no answer.

        Advice to Management

        Stop pressurising staff and pushing them to roles they dont want or roles you have created and have no idea what the role entails. Actually train the staff and not put them through generic training that reminds you of your first day back at school.

        I have been working at Advanced full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        A lot of opportunity for people who are willing to challenge themselves HR cares about your progression and as far as I am concerned are really full of really nice people Mixed culture and full of people with different ideas that aren't scared to express it

        Cons

        Communication between different departments can be better

        Advice to Management

        Slightly clearer structure for progression as well as training but I know that is currently being worked on but generally, I really appreciate what you guys are doing.
