    Pros

    Company has good in itself but MANAGER makes it to weird. Worked as indirect employee.

    Cons

    Need to face the non technical manager.
    Need to work long hours because of manager's inefficient planning.
    No professional environment or ethics.
    No work life balance, Racist showing partiality among staffs. Manager threat always, not secure or safe environment. No benefit and nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire skilled manager. And to educate them the skill to encourage & get work done

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Good working environment.

    Cons

    it is difficult to try and get a permanent job status. You would have to at least have served as a contract staff for at least 1year before they consider you.

    Advice to Management

    Open more permanent position to the masses.

    Pros

    Relaxed environement where employees are given the free reign on when to enter the office or not, as long as the sales targets are met.

    Cons

    Might not be suitable to those who are looking to push themselves beyond an ordinary pushing of insurance to mons and pops kind of job. Prestige level not there.

    Advice to Management

    Work-life balance in this company is definitely enough. Upper mangement takes the effort to train and connect with the people under them.

  8. Positive, but only for really driven people
