    Friendly, ok package, half day Friday, half day Friday and err half day Friday. Also on a Friday you have to work the morning only

    Hand held constantly by top management who are stuck somewhere between 1990 and 2001. Very old school and run like a little family business but a family where no one actually can make a decision

    Let people actually do the job you paid them to do

    I worked at PZ Cussons (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance.
    Good pay for experienced professionals coming from other firms.
    Fun and friendly working environment.

    Cons

    No clear strategy.
    Ridiculous sales targets driving short termism.
    Lacks of budgets to support brands' marketing/trade activities.
    Not invest in market research data.
    So so product innovations.
    Poor supply chain supports from UK HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Please look at other FMCGs on how they support the brands. If you want to gain more revenues, you have to invest more......Moreover, many of company's senior management team have poor knowledge about their brands and markets.
