Pros

The folks here in the firm are committed to delivering quality business to our clients (internally or externally). Everyone is pretty much focused on getting the results and achieving the projects that were set up.

Cons

Quality of certain employees are lacklustre. The lack of quality in certain departments are a stumbling block for the firm as some departments who wishes to drive the firm forward are tugged behind by these departments.

Advice to Management

Hire and retain quality people (especially those with knowledge, drive and grew up with the company) instead of hiring mass but low quality employees.

    Pros

    global company, with a very pro-active approach. Not bureaucratic, really aims to achieve and focus on high impact work. Easy to move around internally.

    Cons

    Very global work force, sometimes teams are speed across many time zones, so team work can be challenging. As the environment is fast paced, governance within the team can be limited.

    Advice to Management

    Documentation and governance is not a sexy endeavour, but is important to maintain within teams, esp when there is turnover of staff. It means not reinventing the wheel too often.


  2. Pays adequately but exhausting and competitive environment

    Pros

    Paycheck is good. Good infrastructure and facilities. I learned a lot.

    Cons

    Maybe it was just in my office but everyone was very competitive. Not a good work/life balace.Worked almost 10-12 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Should give more feedbacks and interact more with the employees.
