    Great Eastern

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsIt has a warm, family like, cosy environment where everyone wants to see each other succeed in this industry.

    ConsRequires alot of self-disicpline as there are no fixed rules with regards to working hours and etc as long as one is able to bring in the clients. Must be able to handle rejection well as not all clients would be agreeable to the products that you offer.

    No work life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ConsImpossible deadlines combined with very limited manpower budget makes you have to work overtime all the time, even work on Saturdays.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI know we are all expendables. But please give a little more respect to your staffs.

    If you're not motivated, don't do it

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA potential to multiply income

    ConsDepending on the manager and agency you join. Advisors' clique can be very cruel to you if you don't do well / don't show results. Some managers, or directors are extremely harsh and heartless to those who takes longer for sales to come in.

    Advice to Senior Managementplease be a little more sentimental towards the new recruits, too extreme in hitting sales is probably why there's such a high turnover rate.
