    Pros

    Pays well Good benefit packages for permanent staff

    Cons

    Very little focus on training Management focused on meeting targets at all costs Regularly see violations on GMP guidelines Managers do not want to accept responsibility for mistakes, always looking to blame members of their staff Staff given too many tasks to do at once and then reprimanded when not everything is finished by the end of the day, focus is on quantity of work not quality of work Managers... reluctant to let staff move from department for career advancement opportunities
