    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at ISS Facility Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly team, open culture and clear strategy vision and values, fair budget spared on training and extra courses to help you in the role

    Cons

    Constantly trying to reduce cost and spend rather than reward employees through varied recognition initiatives

    Advice to Management

    I feel clearer more structured career plans would benefit employees and salary reviews, as a lot of people leave due to securing better salaries. Not only that I think more creative incentives should be implemented not just monetary value by that I mean I think there could be more intrinsic motivational initiatives put forward that would also help the rate of attrition
