    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Allowed to work from home, company willing to pay for training, chilcare vouchers and that's about it really not much more to add

    Cons

    Expected to take on beyond role/salary responsibilities because management is woolly and afraid to make firm decisions so engineer is left with no choice than to take on the risk to complete projects so that management can stop their bullying. Very discouraging place to work as hard work/effort does not recognised by management. PDRs more a formality than actual performance reviews. Do not recommend for graduates or people who are just starting their career as they will be left to fend for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your staff, be more decissive and stop bending the rules to whatever is convenient at the time
