    Pros

    Good work environment -hardware. Currently has a Great CEO.

    Cons

    No development for young ppl because seniors positions are reserved by the Mother Company PMI. Middle level managers are not ambitious and very carefully to keep their job, and eliminate any internal or external competitors.

    Advice to Management

    open the space for promotion of excellent employees. A lot of staff feel no future career development inside the company

    I have been working at Rothmans, Benson & Hedges

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits system.

    Cons

    Company used to fun and challeging place to work. Current trend in finance is downsizing and promoting managers and supervisors who have no people skills in the end demotivating the team. It is no longer a place someone feels happy to wake up and go to every morning.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on 180 degree reviews of supervisors and managers.
