    I worked at Connor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits package.

    Cons

    Too many personal ego and internal politics struggle among the region office.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of recruiting new peoples from outside to take over the existing role, the management should continue to use the talent its has within the company group. Is very demoralizing for employees to see the old talent are being replaced due to global restructuring to cut costs.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Well respected in the industry, especially in the compliance field. Detailed procedures written but unfotunately not appreciated by clients. Ethical company.

    Cons

    A very much top down management styled organization. Very conservative company. Cmparerd to the competitors, Connors not known to be pro-active in offering products with a 'wow' price. Focus is not right. Should be sourcing the future, not inspecting (QA) the future. Too QA focused.

    Advice to Management

    There are many talents out in the offices. Reach out and listen. Corp powers are concentrated in too few senior executives.
