A fun and challenging place to learn not only about the industry and work but also about managing all types of people.

Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at MISC full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat bond and support among the working level. Not at all a stuck up company and reminds you of those companies that treat everyone like family. A good stepping stone and learning ground especially for graduates. For experienced workers, it is a place that allows you the opportunity to implement new ideas and practices. Good location, away from KL traffic.

ConsSome processes slows down decision making. Very hierarchal and limited empowerment to those who are not in the senior category. Sometimes it feels like an old boys club and they tend to tolerate bad management/behaviour by some heads of departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people and allow them the freedom to voice out their ideas and opinions. Discipline those especially at senior level who act out of line. Open up to new ideas and change and communicate better to all levels. Be more transparent and communicative. Don't fear negative feedback as this will help the company to grow positively.

Great company, great potential, underperforming

Business Development Manager (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at MISC

ProsExperience in a market leader involeved in worldwide operations. strong finantially and well structured in terms of departments. You will have great exposure to all industry players and expand your network. Working atmosphere is fine.

ConsLow salary compared to market. Very slow process and too much read tape. If you are not malaysian you will have a hard time to reach the top. Almost impossible.

Advice to Senior ManagementNegotiate your package well before hand and think that it will only be a temporary job before you can reach higher opportunities.
