Engineering Utilities Manager (Current Employee) –  NigeriaOctober 13, 2018
A typical day at work is to set the daily directions for the day, have a brief meeting and review the previous day performance, with a clear vision to put standards and target to reduce or eliminate the hindering factor affecting productivity. All daily actions will be reviewed under a follow-up meeting at 4 pm. Other unclosed actions will be moved to the next day or future actions for the weekly preventive maintenance, be it monthly, quarterly or yearly actions.
Pros
meeting targets and reducing downtime of equipment using IWS methodology
Cons
Working 50hrs a week

Brand / Consumer Marketing Executive (Former Employee) –  Lagos NigeriaJune 25, 2018
This is a great organisation for a beginner with no prior experience in Marketing.

I joined as a Trade Marketing Representative (TMR) and moved up the ranks from TMR level 1 to 3 and later crossed into Brand Management.

This organisation has great and rich culture with global infusions and an excellent brand to Market. Though the product sold is a controversial brand, the company has been able to win societal license to operate by its corporate social responsibility acts.

The hardest part of the job is securing buy in of the field staff on initiatives so they can run with it, as it can be otherwise if not accepted.

The work life balance at this organisation is fantastic and inspiring to any committed staff to give more.
Pros
Free lunch, adequate training
Cons
Managing brand performance with performance of field staff which is out of your control

Logistics Execution Manager - Imports (Former Employee) –  Ibadan, NigeriaMarch 1, 2018
British American Tobacco Nigeria Limited (BATNL) is a Multinational FMCG company located in the Southern part of Nigeria. BATNL, serves as a supply hub to 14 other West African countries.

A typical day at work means attending to projects and meetings, monitoring demands from customers and activating supplies within agreed and approved timelines.

As a graduate of the Team Leaders Academy, I have a end to end understanding of the business, learned and executed Leadership and Management Skills. Also, led and worked with teams to meet and deliver in tough terrains.

Global Logistics challenges were some of the most difficult part of our Supply Chain day to day job. Majorly due to the fact that you don't have any control on goods already in-transit.

Closing deals, meeting and exceeding monthly/quarterly/yearly targets were some of the best parts of the job. Great opportunities to network, meet and learn new things were also what I looked forward to most times.
Pros
Free Lunch, Full medical insurance for self and family, Mobility, Twice a year Salary Review Window
Cons
Work outside regulated hours without pay

It is a good working environment with provision of recreation facilities for staff and family.
A typical day starts with knowing the day's target and mapping out strategies to accomplish it.

And the most enjoyable part of the job is reward for every good performance and success is always celebrated.

Logistics Manager (Warehouse) (Former Employee) –  NigeriaMay 14, 2017
My day starts with a morning meeting to review what things are pending from our set out goals to achieve. What is delaying the undelivered against the timelines. I direct my team to what we are to deliver today as a team and focusing on BAU as well. It's a great place to work. My enjoyable part of the day is when almost all the goals of the day have been delivered.
Pros
Cool environment
