Days are target driven and focused. Numeric and Brand distribution were key. Studied Accelerated Leadership Program through GIBS and learned alot through the marketing deployment team. Gained skills in numeric and trend analysis and market communications. Management was tight and focused. People development was key. Client management and Trade intelligence.

This was an exiting job where i had friendly coworkers that were easy to relate with. The only downside to the job was having to work in the evenings on weekends but it was worth it especially with how they paid. The best part was meeting new people every day and getting to network.
Pros
platform for networking
Cons
odd hours

Each day is different where one encounters and, reviews and fixes problems, both in the factory and the office. Factory: Wastages, Machine problems, Insufficient production stock allocated for night shift, Recons of actual wastage figures compared to budgeted, checking of stock levels, daily stock takes. I learned that one must be on top of it all. Management and co-workers were always there to assist and impart knowledge. Hardest part of job was sitting both accounting and manufacturing staff and educating them on why each of their positions are useless without the other and then educating them on the importance of required figures. The most enjoyable part of the job was it's unpredictably where no two days are the same. Even more important were my co-workers where matters are settled immediately without any grudges held and the freely sharing of knowledge without the thought that one wants the others job.
Pros
Excellent working conditions, with the most updated equipment
Cons
Long meetings that when one requires information, then one must wait until the meeting ends, but on the other one must realise that most meetings involve management of the companies abroad.

I learnt how to be fast and accurate and also work under pressure because during month and year ends we would process over 120 invoices a day instead of 83 invoices that should be processed on a daily basis.

During the first week I was involved in a project to update the templates so that they can be user friendly to the customers. The project was a success because that reduced a lot of rejections due to incomplete templates.

It is one of the best companies that I've worked for. My team was very diverse, but all of us get together very well. Team members were very supportive of each other and were always willing to help.
