    Pros

    1. Less reorganisation as compared to my previous employment

    Cons

    1. There is little career advancement
    2. Employee Benefits have shrunk over the years

    4. Market follower, lack of innovation. I guess this point speaks the reason of the above

    Advice to Management

    1. Be innovative
    2. Shake the management and replace top people with capabilities to lead.
    3. CEO, please be high profile. Show your face more often in front of staff.

    Pros

    The only thing that kept me going was the support that we get from some of our immediate superiors.

    Lots and lots of deadwood and bad decision maker.
    Doesn't give a hoot on what the impact will be to the staff the bottom of the ladder.

    Pros

    Some senior management competent and nice to work with. Benefits not bad. Most colleagues from mid-level downwards nice.

    Cons

    Bad senior management make things difficult for competent management and employees. Bad decisions forced top-down. Internal operations messy. Good employees overloaded. Bad employees liked by "important" management get away with everything.

    Pros

    I can only speak for the department which i worked for, Customer Service Dept. It is a young, fun and dynamic environment to work in. It provides good training ground for fresh graduates. Unlike most offices which are plagued by severe politicking, in M1 Customer Service Dept, one can often find good rapport amongst the ground level staffs.

    Cons

    MobileOne's career enrichment programs is nearly non existent and is very much unstructured. One would've expected more from a big corporation as such. Self motivation is very crucial for any employees to be successful, but encouragement and proper training will definitely help to further the cause. This is something which the management seriously lack, or chooses to turn a blind eye to.

    The mentality of the management is to do the bare minimal and yet gets the best result from the employees. It's very much like calling "TOTO/4D" an investment, with $1 quick-pick TOTO ticket , one still stands a chance to win millions of dollars.
    But seriously what are the chances of that happening???

    I will not encourage anyone who wants to go far in their career to work in M1. Getting a promotion in M1 is 99% Russian roulette and 1% based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    In the telecommunication industry where the market is becoming more saturated in recent years, employees are a company's biggest asset. Because when you can't reduce the price any lower and when all the competitors have the same products, the people factor is the only factor that is going to make the difference.

    Hence, invest in your employees. Because only when they grow, that's when the company will follow suit.
