    I have been working at Olleco full-time

    Pros

    Across all areas of the business, the people at Olleco are incredibly friendly and welcoming; the company looks after all of its employees, both on a personal and professional level, and recognises the importance of making them feel valued and investing in their development. I love working for Olleco and would recommend it to anyone as a great place to work.

    Cons

    The workload is very high and turnaround times can be quite tight making it hard at times to get everything completed day-to-day.

    Advice to Management

    It may be helpful if Management were to look at adjusting their expectations for the completion time scales associated with large scale, company wide projects.
