    Advice to Management

      Pros

      Good pay, good holidays. Nice canteen. Work is relatively easy Some friendly operators.

      Cons

      Cronyism and brown nosing is rampant. Poor management. Some team members are more equal then others.

      Advice to Management

      Be up front with people. Treat everyone the same, no exceptions. Open your eyes to the rampant brown nosing that infects the place, it would improve morale.
