    Pros

    Worldwide Comapny with vast diverse range of products and outlooks.

    Cons

    Total miscommunication throughout the company leading to mixed messages going out for release dates and when this information proves wrong either down to a short delay or most of the times the date being shifted for several months it not only portrays a unstable company it also comes across to the customer that staff seem distrusting and end up loosing credibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get coherent communication and branding strategy throughout, take notice of entry level staff and make them feel apart of something.

    Pros

    free gym, free parking, great people to work with, get to meet some sporting stars, nice environment with the new office building.

    Cons

    not enough money for the responcibilty, too many managers, too much work for the head count on the floor, managers are recognised but not the staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more appreciation should be given as the responcibilty put on staff far outways the salary's paid.
