    Pros

    Varied opportunities. The technical capabilities of the staff are second to non. World class executions of project. Plenty of overseas opportunities.

    Cons

    The salary may not be competitive with the likes of other companies nearby. But the work life balance certainly makes up for that.

    Advice to Management

    Be more competitive with salaries. Possibly follow the likes of other companies such to use the 9 day fortnight scheme.
