      Pros

      Great people to work with. Collaborative culture

      Cons

      Multiple rounds of redundancies over the past 2 years, as it tries to restructure before it blows the budget for doing so. Recent restructure into product channels, with drastic redundancies, seems driven by financial separation, rather than a sensible strategy.

      Pros

      Still getting salary on time

      Cons

      Politics still exist especially on promoting employees. Pay rise is non existent and the people that really are the one performing well for the company are not being compensated or recognized appropriately. Frontliners working all throughout this pandemic until are not being given the compensation they deserve not even a good pay rise.

      Pros

      Amazing people - no one ever works "the 9-5" we all pull together - and make happy customers

      Cons

      Right now... managing by spreadsheet, if the figures look good its ok. If they are not so good, AXE. And then when the customer upturn happens?? No staff so hire or add contractors!
