    Pros

    Will listen to requests for flexibility

    It's all about 'the number'. If you're not an aggressive sales type and happy to make phone calls all day every day and hassle clients, you're not going to make it here.

    Dramatically improve the quality of your service, training and reduce the pressure on staff at all levels. Results will come through happy clients and staff, not pressure.

    I have been working at QA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Without doubt it is the people plus the exponantial growth and resultant opportunities on offer. Although I am in my 65th year as a person and now 2nd as a QA employee, I feel an equal with and to others by the way I have been accepted as a regular employee and not a senior older person. I fell respected by my peers and superiors for my knowledge and ability and look forward to further working career highs with QA

    Cons

    No downsides of any major nature at all.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid reliance upon ICT and keep the human touch.

    Pros

    Even bad companies have good people

    Cons

    Self serving leadership team with no appreciation of people

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring someone to write fake positive reviews about your company, make some positive changes to your culture. 89% employee turnover in year 1 is insane.
