    Pros

    The staff are very friendly and they will help you cope with an Organisation that is going down.

    Cons

    Only Money matter these days, especially at the expense of employees.
    Management do not care about their employees, are very happy to see them leave and would even hold the door open for them.
    Current Italian Senior Management have no emotional intelligence or understanding of the Australian market place.
    Promises, while being made, are almost never kept.
    Opportunity for advancement is incredibly rare if you are not Italian.
    Opportunity for growth is incredibly rare.
    No freedom of expression especially regarding the decisions of Senior Management otherwise you will be forced to leave with or without a payout.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your current employees are saying.
    Try to entice back the people who made Ansaldo (Australia) so successful in the past as they know how the market works instead of continually importing overseas Senior Managers who do not know anything about the Australian market.
