    Pros

    Lot a of opportunities to stand out Flexible working hours Relaxed environment

    Cons

    Nature of inservice can be slow and quiet Middle management sometimes struggled with hierarchy and politics rather than getting the job done

    Advice to Management

    Look to reward and promote current employees more. Back the local capability rather than giving in to Europe.

    Pros

    Great people at the ground level make work bearable.

    Cons

    A fear based workplace run by fear based senior management who recruit the same into middle management. Therefore, nothing ever progresses. Micro management. AGAP wrote the book and wears the T-Shirt.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and look at the same old people who are in the same old senior management positions. AGAP, you need a serious refresh with new ideas!
