    Cons

    I have been working at Frontier Software full-time

    Pros

    Great Job security. Relatively flexible hours.

    Cons

    Takes too long for changes to be implemented for a new or a change in role as top management drag these issues out for months/years. Very limited opportunities to move up the ladder. Most management have been with the company 20 years or more. People are often given opportunities to move to other areas based on management letting the weaker links go so not to upset the team structure..... Team assets get less opportunities...

    Advice to Management

    Recognise your assets better & reward them accordingly with reference to new position opportunities & decent salary increases. Create more opportunities for staff & attempt to deal more strongly with non-performers.
