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

    Pros

    Interesting and enjoyable work. Wide variety of colleagues that bring a diverse mix of skillsets and experience.

    Cons

    Staff not being retained = loss of knowledge. Promises made are broken HR (Human Capital) do not value staff (Capital?) and state can easily be replaced. Low salaries and benefits without considering growth in Cost of Living. Departments run as fiefdoms with lots of politics. Not run as one cohesive organism for the benefit of DP World. So much potential wasted.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the REAL reasons staff are leaving. Do the explanations HC give make sense? Are management getting truthful reporting?
