    I worked at Americana Group full-time

    Pros

    A big name in the food industry business, huge investment

    Cons

    A very bad company , it simple kills you potential and destroys your career . The company is full of nepotism , favouritism and severe corruption which unfortunately coming from the top management team, a ver old school team who used to rule the company management for decades. There is no system nor policies to be followed, sadly the rules and the regulation are breached bluntly by the high people in the organisation. Poor and unhealthy work environment with averge skilled colleagues. Limited learning and growth opportunities

    Advice to Management

    For the the new management after the recent acquisition, please pay attention to the company system no structure , you have to cut down the old school team who were the main reason all the mess happened in the company for the past years.

    Pros

    Working at Americana has proved to be very educating and enriching to my work-life experience. I have been exposed to various roles within my main position, and this has helped develop and gain more skills as a Human Resources Business Partner. Not to mention the sense of familiarity and family like environment which can be felt within every department

    Cons

    It can be very stressful, and dominating to your work-life balance.
