Pros

Good pay, good incentives and good benefits. A lot of opportunities to grow. Get to know a lot of people from different companies, different backgrounds and different cultures. Very competitive working environment.

Cons

High pressure and expectations from top managements, suppliers and customers. Often overloaded with work. Lack of work life balance. Stressful work life.

Advice to Management

Try to provide more work life balance to employees. Examples: 1. Organise weekly company sports activities like badminton, futsal or tennis. 2. Provide gym center or outside gym memberships to employees. 3. Organise more team building events or get-together activities. 4. Discourage employees to stay back and work too late in the company.
