    Pros

    - Knowledge in Capital Market: holistic view can only be obtained here - Small size: opportunity to be visible in the organisation is there if you perform - Competitive remuneration package (salary scale/bonus) - Friendly management team who are approachable - Free parking for all - Nearby LRT station

    Cons

    - Benefits are not that good (annual leave entitlement, loans etc.) - Support functions are under appreciated - Lack of youth in the workforce - Fairly old fashioned HR policies (late coming warning letters etc.) - Unstructured training - underdeveloped staff skill - Over reliance on seniors in the organisation - Lack of opportunity to travel overseas

    Advice to Management

    - Management should consider moving towards a more modernized workforce policy that encourages flexibility. - Train your staff!! Structure your training plans and show them that you care about their development needs this is especially important for younger and hungrier executives. - Hire young people

    Pros

    Strong brand. Lots of friendly staff, from clerks to directors. Unique experience in capital market, as hub for market players and driver for economic growth. Worklife balance good in most divisions, e.g. operations, tech, support divisions, certain business teams. Opportunities to be involved in efforts with nation-wide impact.

    Cons

    CEO too fixated on achieving bottom-line, at the expense of employee welfare. Worklife balance poor in few divisions, e.g. certain business teams, project teams, strategy, finance. Several heads in the organisation with hostile attitude, arrogance, profanity, blame-game character, backstabbing, verbal abuse. Many talents leave because of problems above.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the talents in the organisation and make them stay. Don't command respect and support, earn it.

    Pros

    1. Not too heavy workloads, can have worklife balance 2. Free car park in buidling 3. Better than average bonus, despite lower than other financial institutions

    Cons

    1. No clear direction where the organisation is heading to 2. Too many paper works / reportings works to be done at each business unit level 3. Business units have to bear the responsibility of organisng CSR activities (part of KPI), instead of making it as an organisation wide event 4. Staff at high management / management level may not have the required relevant experience fit for the position 5. Staff with higher pay and position may work much less than the staff with lower pay and position

    Advice to Management

    1. Having a clear direction as in to where the organisation will be heading to is relevant. 2. Have to improve human capital management to ensure all staff are working efficiently and effectively 3. Emphasize more on developing staff because they are the main asset of the organisation.
