A great company to work for. They have many systems of which they constantly align globally which makes it a very complex but stimulating environment to work in. Due to the many international initiatives and processes our country tends to not always be understood and the interventions do often not "fit". However understanding is constantly sought.

The company is undergoing change in it's management systems however, the culture of patronage is still very entrenched. Without any informal personal comnections, you wont grow. Production staff usually remains in their roles for over 10 years. There still remains a lot of uneducated people with lots of power.
Pros
Fair salary, great brand
Cons
No growth, highly political, food subsidy discontinued, unskilled leadership in production, High nepotism.

In my experience, team happiness spurs productivity and by making your work environment a ‘happy place’, you can take care of your team and encourage them to get more done.
