    I have been working at Aramex full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great colleagues - Mostly stress free job - Yearly bonus if business does well

    Cons

    - Lack of communication means staff don't always know what's going on, some things kept a mystery with team leaders/managers - Management slow to put things in to action, ask for advise from staff but then don't do anything - Low staff morale, lack of social/team building events - Lack of career opportunities - Apart from yearly bonus not many other benefits

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and listen to your staff. Actually do what you say you will. Organise more social/team building events.

    Pros

    The colleagues are really friendly.

    Cons

    If you enjoy working in an unheated shed, low pay, only the minimum holidays, no sick pay and long working hours, this is the job for you. Forget about progression, unless you're Arab or chummy with management.
