    I worked at PZ Cussons full-time

    Pros

    I was a production supervisor at Greece. there were Interesting projects, good skills assessment matrix, some of the people had a lot of knowledge and the overall target for production processes were quite clear

    Cons

    Medium company that wanted to become big but without knowing how to implement it (in terms of production practices), a lot of silo culture, politics and sometimes the work life balance was getting out of hand.There was absolutely no training only learn as you go

    Advice to Management

    Less vertical approach in management, less politics and better training to the employees

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    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

    Advice to Management

    Let people actually do the job you paid them to do
