    I have been working at Self Opportunity full-time

    Pros

    Working with some of the very experienced PNG professionals, and also a dynamic team of professionals from whom you can learn a lot from.

    Cons

    Though guidance and trainings are provided, managers and seniors are reluctant in allocating technical and challenging tasks to juniors and intermediates.

    Advice to Management

    Junior staff should be given task that are technical skills in all facets of Accounting to check where theirs strength lie. these are the future of the organisation, and thus, if they are not trained well and skilled in the industry, they firm would find it hard to survive in today's competitive world.

    Skip do not value their courier!They think they own the couriers for earning small money for delivering the food.You pay for your insurance,gas,plus the milage of your car.The cost of the maintenance of your car.Beside if you get accident on the road they don't give a damn about you.They are treating the couriers as their employees.They think they are paying your salary.Couriers earned it by delivering the food using their own car!

    I worked at Self Opportunity full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best thing on this job is you are not overly supervised. You can work at your own pace and make money. The company is open to new advise from employees.

    Cons

    You always have to chase profits and seek best offers for better products. You can be isolated sometimes if you do not seek help. Because you work at your own pace one can lose sight of the bottom line which is buying the best product for the least money.

    Advice to Management

    Setup individual meetings to help new employees and nurture them into future buyers that can make good and sound conclusions. Put less emphasis on profit but training.

    I worked at Self Opportunity full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have always enjoyed working with elderly. I was raised to respect my elders. I love to listen to the stories they love to tell. I feel privileged to get to care for people toward the end of there life. I feel like i am the one that really benefits. I get to be their last best friend in many cases. I always take the love and wisdom they offer me with me.

    Cons

    It is heavy on ur heart loosing people u love again and again, but knowing they are with god and what i said above brings me comfort and drawing strength from my god keeps me going.

    Advice to Management

    The family i worked with on my last home health job were loving, welcoming, and supportive. They took care of arranging all other medical professional visits. They made sure i always had the supplies to care for their mother and grandmother properly. My only grievance is there should have been better communication. Also, unrealistic expectations on hours for one care taker.

    Pros

    Awesome Flexible schedule. Get to spend time with my children and can sign them up for awesome activities and fun stuff. Can work more hours to raise my pay.

    Cons

    I have to work constantly, no benefits, paying taxes at the end of the year, no job security. Going back and forth if a regular 9-5 job wouldn't be better.

    Advice to Management

    Need to diversify clients. Have too many eggs in one basket can be a disaster in the making. The client has less work can mean bills dont get paid.
