review

Analyst (Former Employee)
Kampong Baru Subang (Malaysia)

I worked at Malaysian Airlines full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood initiative and always planning ahead of time. People are willing to work hard and proud to be an MH family.

ConsHiring is too easy as long as you have a connection. Some people are not even worth a paycheck yet they are hired because of "networking." Too many talents have gone to waste because they are unable to move up as the current boss is not going anywhere. So they decided to leave.

Advice to Senior Managementspend the money wisely :)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very comfortable company for those who seek in long term

Analyst (Former Employee)
Petaling Jaya (Malaysia)

I worked at Malaysian Airlines full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat benefit since it is a GLC. Get to travel either on holiday or duty travel. Get to know other staff from all over the world. Get to work with international people.

ConsDepends on bosses, some managers do not permits their staff to duty travel even though the big boss encourage. A lot of old mentalities which do not support new ideas. No room to develop(it depends on who are your bosses). Sometimes working in a comfortable company for long time can reduce your enthusiastic to work hard and improve the company. Not all analysts know what they are suppose to do and hard to find a good mentor since everyone just want to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up in encourage the people to work not for themselves but for the society and the company. Training people is important as they are the key of the business especially the young generations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good place to learn and develop your career, but no equal opportunity to progress

Engineering Heavy Maintenance (Current Employee)
Kampong Subang (Malaysia)

I have been working at Malaysian Airlines full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe best place to learn the rope since nobody want to work, you'll get the chance to do real work. Flexible working enabling you to go for exams and short course to self develop your career.

ConsPoor management team who don't want to listen. Highly top-down management style. Know-who approach to everything. No continuity in any initiative by management.

Advice to Senior ManagementRebuild work culture, flatten the management structure, encourage honest feedback, review PMS evaluation system, acknowledge and incentivize high performer to retain them.
