A very toxic work environment.

They unfotunately have a very toxic work envirinment. Completely risk averse and unfortunately the fish rots from the top. They are prepared to keep copying and pasting as thry have previously done. They do not completely understand the role of marketing or public relations and how it can benefit their business....

Pros

None

Cons

No room to create grow or explore. Too risk averse.

Long hours and very busy

The management needs a review and training on how to handle staff problems. I worked there and there were usually problems with staff and safety as to getting to and from work which manger said is not really their area of concern

Management, Salary, Working hours

The Management is too poor. There is no safety clothing e.g shoes and trousers. Working 12hrs per day but you don't get the money you supposed to get.
