      Pros

      There are some great emmployees at Gen-i, who make it at least worthwhile to turn up every day. The expectations in terms of performace are quite light so there work is generally easy.

      Cons

      Management do not understand this market, service offerings are disjointyed and it is dificult to find who we are, what we sall and what benefits we can bring to our customers. The talk is big but theaction and application are abysmal. ALl talk and no action.

      Great company to work for with many great people who are willing to help. Perfect location in the City, minute from Museum station and Haymarket for lunches.

      Cons

      There is no perfect company in this world! Like many other company, Gen-i also has alot of people that are lazy and do not take responsibilities. Poor management leadership has led to a us taking on Accounts beyond Gen-i's capabilities
