  1. "Good place to work, but a bit all work and no play"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Fulfilling work, lots of variety, directors recognise the pressure from loss of excess staff and have really embraced using skills from the resource pool when needed.

    Cons

    Overly pressured to deliver, corporate rewards have dried up, hard times with no bonus being paid out this past year, messages from CEO are nearly non-existant, Mike Rake even less visible. Compared to previous leaders, I really don't know what these guys are actually doing.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate what you're doing re: keeping as many staff as possible, but need to be careful that you're not too insular; would appreciate seeing and hearing more from you than once per quarter at the shareholder results webinars!
