    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Connells full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Like any decent organisation, you really do get out what you put in. I have been able to map out my career, and always had the full support of my line managers. Having the right attitude is rewarded, and the training and development is far superior than my last “large” company.

    Cons

    This company does not reward a negative attitude or a lazy work ethic, but does support hard working individuals.
