Product Improvement Manager (Current Employee) –  OyoFebruary 11, 2020
A typical day at work in this organisation should be productive. The level determines what happens the next day and the next after. We strive as much as possible to have a DDS (Daily Direction Settings) to understand what are the requirements for the day before setting out on the day.

Other activities follow as deem fit.

Operator (Current Employee) –  IbadanOctober 10, 2019
The management are making life miserable for their junior staff particularly the production departments which makes most of employees to work with high services, back bit e.t.c. More so the management enjoyed most of the benefit where as the junior employees get few or no benefit at all.

The ability to keep vital information is what keeps everyone going (individuals and organisations) and that should be our watch word. When we have all the resources but don't know how to make use of them it will never be enough

HEAD OF LEAF (AGRIBUSINESS) OPERATIONS (Current Employee) –  NigeriaSeptember 10, 2019
Each day comes with a different challenge, however, there is a strong support structure to help overcome these challenges. Dealing with external stakeholders is the toughest part of the job and this helps me appreciate better the culture of my organization and the numerous opportunities for self-development I have enjoyed over the years.

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

Fun place to be
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
