    Pays well and offers great health benefits and annual bonus was always paid. Some really great people still worth there

    Very poor culture recently as the business expands and toxic. Dealing with Singapore and USA can be a nightmare. Bottlenecks and add no real value

    Pros

    There are some really good people there, just not allowed to succeed, or given the opportunity to shine. Unless part if the inner circle(TNS).

    Cons

    Not paid Accordingly to field, experience or Job
    Let down by incompetent managers and lack of ability to Fire Lazy and under performing staff members
    Terrible culture, micro-management, family-like business decisions, arrogance and ignorance, no people empowerment or leadership skills.

    Human resources are poor beyond belief through promoting incompetent staff and are poor, poor communicators.

    Advice to Management

    Start actually doing some of the things you proudly display in your glossy videos and lists of corporate values regarding how you treat your employees. Get some managers that can actually make decisions in their departments instead of just passing the buck up the chain.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours are good

    Cons

    Where to begin - place has a culture of inertia beyond comprehension, management have their clique and no one else is allowed near it. Can't get their act together and actually change things. Love talking about change and new focus but nothing ever changes. Things take months to get done, if they get done at all.

    Advice to Management

    Have a look at who you employ, how long they've been here and what they achieve. Loads of people seem to fly under the radar and get away with doing nothing and receive a pay cheque.
