    I worked at MISC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great worklife balance
    -Good Sports, Recreational programs IRER

    Cons

    -Inefficient
    -Prefers to look strictly on qualification as a minimum requirement to reward promotion. Qualification alone can come as hindrance to reward a performer as they see all candidates needs to have both. This somewhat hinders recognition and promotion to a narrower scope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Minimize unnesessary costs and time wastage. Need to work to be more efficient.
    -Must find ways to reward loyal performers regardless of qualifications

    Former Employee - Engineer in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

    I worked at MISC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Bonus payout quite satisfactory depends on your kpi. Average yearly bonus around 3-4 months.. Sometimes can go for 8 months.

    Cons

    Bad politics within middle and top management. Double standard applied to sea staffs and shore staffs. Business unit is poor and do not know how to expand business. MISC profits depends on LNG sectors where they have long time MoU sending LNG to Japan, and others depends on Petronas. Less empowerment and plenty other bad stories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your management because you are no longer the player.

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

    Pros

    Great bond and support among the working level. Not at all a stuck up company and reminds you of those companies that treat everyone like family. A good stepping stone and learning ground especially for graduates. For experienced workers, it is a place that allows you the opportunity to implement new ideas and practices. Good location, away from KL traffic.

    Cons

    Some processes slows down decision making. Very hierarchal and limited empowerment to those who are not in the senior category. Sometimes it feels like an old boys club and they tend to tolerate bad management/behaviour by some heads of departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people and allow them the freedom to voice out their ideas and opinions. Discipline those especially at senior level who act out of line. Open up to new ideas and change and communicate better to all levels. Be more transparent and communicative. Don't fear negative feedback as this will help the company to grow positively.
