      Not as bad as the reviews

      Pros

      New CEO is on the ball and has made excellent changes. He listens to what the staff have to say and acts on it. I got to learn from sincere and nice colleagues from different backgrounds and met other business owners and hear of their experiences. Many learning opportunities and funding. Location is good and cheap lunch from the markets. Be firm on the salary you want.

      Cons

      Some old timers refuse move and they block changes. A few colleagues are very toxic and extremely negative. HR is also very weak and lax. I’ve seen and heard of colleagues from different departments go on leave without the need to submit leave applications. This is unfair to those who have to pick up the work after them while they keep rolling over their leave or eventually cash it out when they leave. And whether you can cash out depends on your director.
