    Pros

    Good staff purchase scheme, whereby you can purchase any item at the same cost to the company

    Cons

    Senior management run this company as if it were still in the eighties!! There is absolutely NO trust, employees are requested to fill out "away on business" forms if they are out of the office visiting customers and have to obtain the permission of senior management, even for so called external positions!! There is categorically no working from home, again, not even for external or even senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to totally overhaul the entire sales floor, a large number of account managers have been in the same job for decades!!! And are not motivated, ambitious or even interested. Because if this the sales floor is extremely difficult for anybody to manage effectively. Everyday is a focus or spiff day, which kind of takes the focus away.


  2. "Robust processes but could do with Product refresh and some fresh management"

    Need to invest in new products and technologies as legacy markets are in decline; incumbent management need to stand back and review practice as this is counter productive
