      Pros

      All started very positive with good support and training in place

      Cons

      Staff under appreciated and under paid, as other employees left you were left to pick up the slack from multiple different roles. As you raised concerns, management did have an ear but no steps were ever implemented to elevate concerns. What's even worse is they only recognised your desire for a pay rise and offered a substantial raise only when you were leaving and they had no other options.

      Pros

      The people are great, friendly and easy to work with. Most of the people have extensive industry experience and know what they are talking about for a product and the Vela brand having a good reputation

      Cons

      Currently being integrated with a company who’s management doesn’t know right from left. They are in over their heads and are sluggish to just decide on making a decision on everything and anything. Once they do feel it needs to be discussed it’s far too late.
