Pros

Big brand name on the CV which helped me in getting to my senior position now otherwise nothing else!

Cons

- Lack of career progression - lack of development and training invested in staff other than to throw people in the deep end - Politics - Team leaders takes credit for the their subordinates hard work - lack of transparency in measuring staff's performance and hence inability to reward staff (bonus is a few hundred dollars max) - bottom line profit is a priority to this company rather than their own employees - this is evident through their extreme cost cutting measures such as removing tea and coffee from the kitchens. Cost cutting seems to be the main solution rather than growth - People - due to the long length of service of many of the employees - there is a culture of not being open to change. This is due to the lack of investment in the development of staff as noted above - graduate program is a joke - lack of rotation and graduates are pigeon holed into a role - lack of consistency in models and methods used by various staff in the same role/job title - unwritten/unspoken expectation to work from home/offsite when employee is sick or on leave - lack of work life balance

Advice to Management

Invest in your people. Cost cutting is also not the solution to your woes.

    Pros

    The salary is good, given that I am an new entrant. The management is excellent, if you are under foreign supervision. They take care of you and give you the support you need.

    Cons

    There is a lot of politics going on, but could be avoided if you have the right team. People are very straight forward, and it could come off as rude.

    Advice to Management

    Advise your employees. Guide them to the right learning materials. Could help a lot.


  2. Great place to work
