    Pros

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

    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"

    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...

    Pros

    Well organised and managed company, keeps employes happy and gives ample scope for self development. Provides full rights of the employes. Housing and safety is very satisfactory.

    Cons

    Location of the company is remote with no city touch being away from city limits. Weather is warm throughout the year. Need more investment to take the company forward. Poor technically designed.

    Advice to Management

    Need to increase investment to take forward and progress by introducing less expensive products to match Nigerian market. Source raw materials in open global market than to get tied up with one.
