Pros

The organization has a relatively laid back atmosphere. Not too much pressure is placed on the day to day activities of the employees.

Cons

The organization has a myopic vision for the future, or at least as communicated to the employees from upper management. There is very little employee turnover, so many ideas are old and non-progressive.

Advice to Management

Demonstrate leadership by communicating long term plans through the ranks and acting upon stated plans.

    Pros

    Its part of a larger company

    Cons

    Corporate box tickers who pretend to listen to staff needs and requests, then twist them beyond all recognition to suit their own corporate clap-trap. They made it extremely daunting for staff to report problems by smothering them with forms to fill in and endless senior management reviews. They introduced a ludicrous "points based" bonus scheme that created a twisted and at times hysterical atmosphere in the company. They encouraged staff to report any issue to them in the name of "being caring" - but this only served to create a culture of denunciation with the business. Avoid if at all possible.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.
