    Pros

    Great opportunities and projects
    Higher than average pay
    Team activities and meals out
    Discounted Gym membership and good Nissan car discounts

    Cons

    Day starts at 7.55 and ends at 4.40 with only a 30 minute lunch
    We were working on Windows XP operating system
    Office politics make work difficult and leave unpleasant work environment
    Some in the office area take advantage of being left to complete own work without close supervision and will sit on Facebook, Daily Mirror and other websites while others work which leads to frustration in the office.

  2. Well organised with positive 'can do' culture; pressure to perform but not much recognition.

    Pros

    Positive goal achievement culture, well organised, reasonable training opportunities - e.g. 80% sponsorship for higher education.

    Cons

    Limited career opportunities. Long working hours expected - seen as the 'norm' by management, therefore little appreciation shown. Pressure to perform, but little difference in reward between good performance and average performance.

    Advice to Management

    On a company level senior management are doing a fair job maintaining business competitiveness. On an individual level performance and reward (recognition/remuneration/career prospects) are poorly linked.

    Car benefit, coaching, teamwork, location

    Tenure of employees in hire positions, limited growth opportunities

    Create a "true" career plan that's shared with employees. Be more accountability by setting the right example.

    Pros

    generous benefits, company likes to promote within, annual boom of growth opportunities, excellent company mission statement and growth plans

    Cons

    far too frugal, out-of-touch leadership, salaries are ADMITTEDLY the worst in the industry, far too often, the company doesn't follow the excellent mission statement and growth plan they have in order, far too much emphasis on attendance and too little emphasis on quality and performance.

    Advice to Management

    listen to the front line employees rather than creating rules that hinder production and produce a negative morale. attendance policy needs to be thrown out and revisited.
