    Base performance bonus and promotion prospects less on a rigid set of guidelines but more on performance and ability

    Pros

    Nice people, good working environment, regular office hours with no OT needed.

    Cons

    As a Customer Service Office (CSO), your job scopes are not limited to just resolving the enquires from public. Be prepare to get all sort scoldings and unreasonable demands from the member of public. Especially from people who are "anti government". There are just too many schemes for a CSO to know before you are fully trained.

    Advice to Management

    Try to view from a CSO point of view. Be realistic and don't demand for both quantity and quality.

  10. A good stepping stone for fresh grads.

    Be more open and direct to the working staff. Don't beat around the bush if you are going to chop the head count
