    Pros

    Appear very friendly at first , this is an illusion be warned !! Apologies for this statement , however I speak from experience from GT processes and from the truth.

    Cons

    Appear very eager from job offer, then offer contracts then ( don’t tell you) that your job offer is not valid until you do another interview after you have already completed and accepted contract, completed security on boarding! On interview with client They did Not offer a representative from GT related Function to be invited on the interview,! When complained about the un fair treatment their response was : we don’t offer chaperone service !

    Advice to Management

    Replace your Risk& Assurance managers, and do a TOM around your management team , follow the correct Employment law and rights and avoid discrimination at all costs. Your current recruitment and on boarding process failed!!! CSI ITIL and Lean - CoBIT Management is needed urgently!!!!
