  1. "Former employee"

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Was a very good company to work for. High performance atmosphere where good performance was rewarded by means of progressive remuneration and bonus schemes.

    Cons

    As part of a larger organisation you sometimes felt a small cog in a large machine. Thus ability to influence sometimes was limited by the wider needs of the organisation, rather than by the good of the local organization.

    Advice to Management

    In general keep up the good work. Try and show to local employees how their efforts are influential to and appreciated by the wider organisation. Be sensitive of the external local events and conditions as they impact on the employees' lives.


  2. "Let go"

    Pros

    Didn't micromanage us. They let us set our own schedule.

    Cons

    Let go as soon as they were done with a project without warning.

    Advice to Management

    Projection meetings for longevity of projects.
