Pros

Varied opportunities coupled with project work and change management. Always something going on, but you need to be flexible and prepared to seize opportunities as, when and where they occur.

Cons

A bit disjointed and some IT issues. Silo mentality. Fire fighting on occasions and obsession with how results will be received in city - some short term knee jerk actions as a result.

Advice to Management

Get off your backsides and visit some sites - get a feel for the business. Stop reading about how to do it - do it! And take a long term view sometimes.

    Pros

    the company was always approachable and appreciated employees who used their initiative.Also the company always had good working conditions

    Cons

    Sometimes it appeared as though some people were employed who didn't know the job
    I,m referring to management Some managers were put in charge of liquid tankers and had only ever experienced powder and flat bed vehicles

    Advice to Management

    Chase new business more vigourously and perhaps diversify more e.g specialist transport cars, heavy equipmenti and perhaps a takeover
