    Pros

    The have established standards and procedures also a good company benefits.

    Cons

    The quality of the recently hired ( the last few years) are not up to required standard, the company needs to set up technical training for the new hired especially the engineers in training.

    Advice to Management

    Management shall retain the long term employee and make use of their experience to train the new comers. When they hire senior personnels they shall do in depth checking on the person technically back ground (not just friends or family or people of their same nationality)

  2. Woefully adequate

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, treat people like grown ups, and like professionals.

    Cons

    Too many culls, company is run by IT and HR who need to realize that they are SUPPORT services to the business and construction activities, too many competing entities within the company for the same work, and inflexibility to complete with outside consultants for the same works.

    Advice to Management

    - work should be directed internally, rather than given to the outside consultants where possible, to maximize profitability to shareholders.
    - Housecleaning and reorganization is in order. Hopefully the new CEO takes care of this....eventually.
