Pros

Great colleagues, and collegial environment. Interesting product portfolio. Location is good.

Cons

There is a large disconnect between executive management & real issues in workforce.
The Workplace is under-resourced for the set objectives in all departments. The company has experienced annual redundancies (7 years running) & struggles for profitability. The lack of financial stability leads to limited growth & development opportunities. Annual Salary adjustments do not keep up with inflation. Human resources management is quite poor.

Advice to Management

Develop more open & receptive communication with workforce. Work on focused strategy & reasonable objectives for work force.
