    Pros

    Suitable environment for you if you know how to suck up to superiors

    Cons

    5 values are there for show only. Bosses just interpret based on their own understanding. Eg. being pragmatic doesn't mean apply apply quick fix to get the task closed, because it doesn't solve the problem in long run Many ineffective processes. People just work in silo and run their own agenda. They only work with other department when they need something from them or when the issue has went out of hand. Too much focus on executive folks. Some leaders not even trained or have relevant experience to do their portfolio. Lack of development for non-executive folks. HR is terrible. I get wrong employment contracts etc. Did not even receive the original contract!

    Advice to Management

    Don't preach about pragmatism until you understand the meaning. Quick fixes are applied to problems, but they dont solve the underlying issues in the long run

    Pros

    High growth comes from management aggressively looking for business opportunities as an on going mandate. Good financial planning and execution. Learning opportunities with both international exposures and local touches. Management perks.

    Cons

    High volume of work, long working hours create challenges to work/life balance. Business and connections are above all. Many old fashioned trading and souring management mentality folks from top.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have good governance model, benchmark against peers in place.

    Pros

    The DKSH fringe benefits are fair and competitive with the outside market.

    Cons

    My base salary was not fair and not competitive with the outside market. Cons were also enumerated in the 'Advice to Management' section of this review.

    Advice to Management

    • Provide support for employee learning and development. Managers often think of “Cost reduction and cost avoidance” but they should realize that untrained employees will cost significantly more to support than well-trained workers. By providing such, it will increase productivity and performance improvement, boost employee morale and retention. • Managers should also contribute in helping employees maintain their work-life balance. Managers should not be hesitant when employees request to avail their vacation leave/s. As a result, employees use emergency excuses to use their vacation leaves because the superior disapproves the filed leave/s or asks a lot of personal questions before approving the vacation leave request. • Make the Company an “Employee-friendly workplace”. This is important to help employees deal effectively with personal or family-related pressures while minimizing the disruptions such pressures can cause at the work site. Suggest bringing back the “Flexible Work Schedule”. Several companies are already using flexible work arrangements as a tool for retention and motivation of employees. • Provide competitive rewards/incentives and salary increase to non-sales employees (e.g. Rank & file, Supervisors, Officers). These types of employee will be more motivated and will help boost their morale and increase employee retention if they are being recognized in such manner. • As much as possible, avoid Performance Punishing. Managers tend to reward employees who perform very well with more demanding work. Superiors see this only as “developing the employees’ skills”…without even realizing that they are burning out their valuable employees. With this happening in the workplace, most employees leave. Some may stay, but the quality of some of their work deteriorates.
