    Pros

    - Company is focusing on improving processes, removing waste, and automating mundane tasks. For project management teams, this will be invaluable and will allow people to focus on value added tasks rather than tedious administrative tasks. This is work in progress but great that it is being recognized and addressed.

    - New initiatives for company "health" are showing some improvement on work/life balance, but this is still Localization - always on.

    - For the most part, very competent staff that is dedicated to succeeding.

    - WIllingness to embrace and to drive change to continuously improve the industry.

    Cons

    - Data gathering is placed higher than employee morale and time. Currently employees need to log their time spent in two different systems. Lack of forethought led to this being required to provide the required data to show new systems and engineering development is worth the investment.

    - Project managers need to always be checking email and status of projects. People are always on, dedicated to their clients and their projects. This is not a 9-5 job and as such our team previously were provided a great deal of flexibility as to where they worked from and what specific hours. This has changed with new management and the flexibility once enjoyed is now scaled back. It is still more flexible than other companies,

    Advice to Management

    - Keeping Project Management teams at 100% capacity does not allow time for learning and growth and strains people during abnormally busy times. Create learning opportunities for when people have a little free time instead of focusing on how to ensure people are busy 100% of the time.

    - Growth by acquisition is a fine strategy but more energy should be spent integrating into the company. This should go beyond the integration of systems.
