Workmanship
Distell can improve alot of work stations and it can definitly make more efforts in others ideas , not taking credit for everything.

Giving early retirements was not the right thing to do

I was so passionate about my work
I was doing a job that I liked most with a lot of traveling, meeting deadlines of sales is one of the things that I liked about that job but things changed later on.

Company restructured and this cause retrenchments/early retirements
Stress full and inconsistent
A huge amount of experience in programs, processes and procedures

Management changed a few years ago and it brought a lot of changes to the company. Some good some not so good, good/experienced people who worked for the company for years lost their jobs.

Years of experience is not important as one would expect.

To try and keep your staff motivated if the company made changes without timeous communication to adjust or put processes in place.

When targets are reached and staff are happy and celebrating.

Growth of workers
They just over look people who are capable for promotions. Slowing the growth of personnel working for them for many years. They supply good packages with the cost to company for an employee.

Corporate and stressful at times but truly a fun and exciting company to work for
The company is very focused on achieving targets and sometimes forgets about its employees. It use to be very enjoyable to work here but it seems that the pressure from upper management does make sales a bit more stressful.

On the other hand, the people do make it enjoyable and fun and it is definitely a company i would recommend if you want to accelerate your career.

Overall this is a great company.
Management must pay attention to its employees especially on certain opi or suggestions they bring.
It is a great company to work for they do spot talent when they see one.

collaborative, fun, challenging
. Consistent meetings with other Divisions for alignment
. Learnt to work well together with internal and external stakeholders,a s well as all the how to gain Return On Investment

. The culture is that of respecting one another, working and winning in Teams, competitive towards opposition

. The m enjoyable part of the job is remuneration when targets get met ie incentives and bonuses

The hardest part is when there is little or no alignment between the Regional office vs the Head office
