    I have been working at Jardine Matheson full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good compensation. Large conglomerate to expose yourself to a lot of industries. Great place to develop your career.

    Cons

    Conservative old fashion family business. Slow in technology adaptation. Some middle management are shallow and not respectful to the staff members. Group companies are too decentralized - weak in corporate culture.

    I have been working at Jardine Matheson full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Assigned to Gammon Construction which operates under Jardine. Great experience. Pretty relaxed but it's still a good overview and great insight into the overall functions of a corporation. I was mentored by one of the JETs, and basically did first-year JETs work under supervision.

    Cons

    Like all internships, there are days of pure boredom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, great HR department, great organization for an internship program.

    I worked at Jardine Matheson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great team work (I got great colleagues to support me, likewise!).
    - Flexibility with delivering of work and report.
    - Great supervisors with years of experiences to guide and nurture subordinates.
    - Company invest a lot on career development and training.
    - Perks of staying in 5 star hotels, economy class flights and jet setting across the globe (USA, Europe and Asia).
    -You get to mingle with the top management in some events, which is great!

    Cons

    - Limited career growth for an IT background person (however, if you've financial background, you're in luck!).
    - As a multinational company, bonus is standard about average 2 months standard.
    - Increment is 5-7% annually (those years...not too sure about now).
    - Allowance is based on country you're working with, so if you're in Malaysia, that's RM60. Imagine if you travel to Europe, RM60 is only EUR13!!! However, you are allowed to claim per diem for food and transportation charges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better salary match in the market. Pride in Performance is the tagline, if you perform, you'll be rewarded well.

    I worked at Jardine Matheson

    Pros

    It has friendly environment and enjoyable woring time.
    It also offers reasonable package for intern.
    As a big coorporation, it offers opportunities in many areas

    Cons

    Company strategies are conservative. If young and love chanllenges, it is recommended to work in other sectors. Also its pay though higher in corporate sector, is far below what banking and consultancy can offer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders are in general very friendly and approachable. However, due to the history and sheer size of the company, they tend to be too conservative sometimes.
