Pros

The flexibility in the job and work life balance is excellent.
People are great to work with and the facilities are very nice.

Cons

The flat structure and the lack of transparency of the organisation leaves a lot of people in the dark regarding the direction of the company.

Advice to Management

More open communication on the direction of the company.
Listen better to the feedback of the staff and act on it.
Do not change peoples roles before it is clear what the consequences are and what their role exactly is going to be.

    I worked at Professional Advantage full-time

    Pros

    PA pushing its team to work as best as they can. There is the opportunity to switch roles based on market demands and skill sets.

    Cons

    There’s been a strong shift to cut cost by moving the workforce to Manila and little investment in developing the company’s culture locally. Other than being a “high performing workplace” a euphemism for “work stupidly long hours” to be acknowledged or considered for a pay rise, there is a lack of belief or understanding around cultivating or maintaining a culture. Team building is rare, and Christmas parties rarer still. It feels like this company is stuck in the 90s in the way it recruits, manages and treats its team.

    Advice to Management

    Ask people what they want from the company and listen to them. Hire more Millenials.

    I have been working at Professional Advantage full-time

    Pros

    Great Culture for self starters and those who want to lead by example.
    The organisation suits autonomous workers and go getters. No micro management exists.
    Team driven and a progressive flat management structure.
    Unique Opportunities offered to staff in relation to roles and locations of work.
    Collaborative and open approach to strategy setting with all involved given a say in direction.
    Change is embraced and structure and strategy often reviewed.
    Good people stay and those who aren't focused on team and customer success are quickly found out.

    Cons

    Not ideal for those seeking title advancement as the organisation is more focused on providing experience and fostering leadership. (ie you have a great opportunity to succeed but you also the opportunity to not).
    Some roles like consulting won't have dedicated management to foster inexperienced resources.
    If you don't ask - you don't get at PA.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the values that have made the organisation so successful.
