      Pros

      Nothing, zero, nil, nada, I am literally wasting space because this field has 20 words minimum with blah blah blah.

      Cons

      This is where the story is at: 1. Blame culture. Staff blames other staff, head of department blames other departments and if you are someone who have been accountable and take ownership of your actions, then they will point the finger at you first 2. Little - to - no career progression. I worked there for over 1 year as a contractor and help them won the tender but they couldn't make my position a permanent one. They cited 'we are trying to reduce overheads.' 3. management have a lot to be desired for; They will tell you to shut up right in front of your peers. They will spy on your emails. They will talk about you behind your back. They will yell at you, in front of your peers. They will create rumours about you and they will spread it. They will ears drop on your conversations 4. they look after their own. If they don't like you for whatever reason or you are not with the 'in' crowd, They will give you menial work to do all day hoping that you will hate it and resign of your own accords. Therefore no career progression, even if you try to stick it out, you are not progressing because there is no challenge in the task they had given you and they will keep you down there in that position. 5. An example of when they protect their own; person A made person B on the same team cried. Person A always picks on person B and person A made it clear that person A hates person B. This pretty much constitute bullying. Management moved person B in to another team whilst person A remained. By doing that they have protected person A and punished person B. 6. This is a haven for those who are lazy. When you showed management that you are willing to learn and capable, the lazy people will try to hand their task over to you. You will end up doing your work and other people's work too. 7. Bad communication between all the departments. 8. No change and management does not encourage innovation or change. I made one suggestion that will help solved missing data issue, management flat out refused without considering the time saving factor 9. Positions advertised Internally first, they promote their favourite person from within 10. unprofessional; emails with bad language and tone sent to customers and suppliers and that is if you are lucky, otherwise they won't answer. No display of business courtesy to staff or suppliers.
