    Pros

    Great place to work. All ideas are welcome by management. Open-door policy in place. Great work-life balance. Annual salary increases.

    Not a lot of room for moving up. Staff turnover is high.

    Staff need more 'promotion'.

    Pros

    Nice working environment with engaged staff, flexible procedures and policies in place , good school for young employees

    Cons

    Nice civil service for retirement guys (I mean talents over 45) , if you admire so much ex Unilever and Procter guys that you hire please do us a favor please "GO AND WORK FOR THEM"

    Advice to Management

    I think that you are smart guys, please do some changes now or you can just watching your stock going down. If I was the CEO I would probably starting with the supporting functions .I think that it's time to pay the bill...

    I have been working at PZ Cussons full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management style offers one the ability to challenge the status quo as well as create opportunities to deliver on set objectives.

    Cons

    Though a consumer led business, marketing spend is always inadequate and management need to invest massively on all the key brands

    Advice to Management

    Management need to look into career development of its staff especially the junior staff. They need more empowerment and mentoring to grow in their respective roles.

    I have been working at PZ Cussons (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked in many large blue-chip multinationals before joining PZ CUSSONS. This is the best company I have been with. It allows you to grow and contribute both professionally and personally. Politics are at a minimum and you can be yourself (no need for all the brown nosing required in almost all other companies). Just focus on doing what is right for the business, and that will be appreciated. It has a great informal environment. The culture will not be right for anyone who is keen to 'develop' his/her career through self-serving agendas, or at the expense of others. Management is open to, and will drive change for the good of the business.

    Cons

    Does not have presence in that many countries.. Yet. However, It is well positioned to grow in focused countries.

    Advice to Management

    Continue With the ongoing transformation agenda. No company offers guaranteed lifelong employment anymore. We have to do what we have to do, in a competitive environment. This is not a Charity. It is a business.
