    Pros

    Relatively flat structure ... see the CEO most days in passing and chat. Fast growing company with all the wish list of clients on our books. Leading the way in outsourcing and no real competitors that can match our cradle to grave offering .. only matching parts of the lifecycle. Great career opportunities to move within the business.

    Cons

    Benefits are basic (no maternity enhancement, other than 6 weeks at 50%), salary reviews are limited. Should pay more to retain talent.

    Advice to Management

    Excelling in business growth and retainging clients, however think management should review benefits package and salary benchmarks in order to retain and attract talent.
