    Iconic status and business that is in transition at the moment and they have recently lost the CEO due to some differences of opinion on the business changes, the business still has a string following

    Pros

    Fantastic friendly and hardworking team. Mobility within the company. Discount perks

    Cons

    Management needs to allocate larger budgets for their talent. People leave and that spreads the work load across the team. There is general feeling of lack of recognition from employees for the energy that they put in. Due to the size of the company - there is a lot of redundancy and snowballed problems.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people and increase salaries so you can retain your talent and dont stress the rest of the team and avoid further loss of your talent. Improve communication between departments
