    Insightful and Enrichment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFriendly culture: good senior staffs, passionate mentor

    ConsDifficult in liaising with other units, lack of formal training by organization

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo attract talent: Bank should develop the talent programme for young graduate which is formal training. Secondly, set the expected salary. These two are the core value to attract and retain talent.

    Senior Business Analyst

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

    ProsIf you looking for family type of working environment, then this is the place for you. The people are friendly here and after 6 years here i made quite a few good friends.

    Cons1. No career development for existing staff. Management prefer to hire outsider than considering the internal staff. So very hard to get promote unless can you can kipas the senior manager.
    2. No work life balance. The senior management appreciate working hard and late rather than working effectively. Although you can finish your work faster, no one will value your work. Those who likes to come early to work and finish late will be rewarded. Those who can effectively manage their work faster than the slow old timer will be rewarded by giving him/her more work.
    3. Salary very low compare to industry/market rate. Most people can considerate that because they are comfortable with their friends and the other benefit like medical benefit and the fact that most staff take staff loan -which is lower than commercial interest rate. EPF contribution by empoyer is good. The bonus is average -you can expect 3 moths bonus if you can score 3 points in your KPI. During promotion maybe can get 4 and above (very rare case).

    Advice to Senior Management1. Open & listen to staff suggestion-reduce the power distance.
    2. Adjust the staff salary t be compatible with market price.
    3. Change the old timer at management who doesn't contribute to any value.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
