    Pros

    Awesome benefits, exciting environment to work as its based in heart of city..A good company to be with and move..

    Cons

    No career development..too many internal politics..promotion is like never happen..once in a blue moon.. its either you work to long in the same position and resign or just resign from where you started..happens in selected divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career development should be very active and encouraging, the management should create leader and champions and not keeping the staff in the same department for ages.

    Pros

    1. Learning and Development provided at Maxis Academy (Plaza Sentral)
    2. Good Wages and Benefits

    Cons

    1. To much unnecessary marketing expenses
     2. Always depends on 3rd party recruitment agency such as Kelly Services to manage pay roll for subordinate which is a waste and internal HR it self can manage it better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Cut down unnecessary expenses
    2. Cut down unnecessary head counts
    3. Cut down unnecessary claim benefits for non profitable division

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good - mobile, internet allowance; dental; insurance; medical.

    Cons

    Too much red tape, causing slow turnaround time and frustration. Despite efforts to make things simple, certain members of 'management' are unwilling to change. Some bosses run their kingdoms any how they like it and take all the credit for your work. In some teams, employee welfare is poor although efforts are being made to address this at a higher level. I believe in what Morten is trying to do, but not everyone is on board. Some members of senior leadership clearly are not and are merely paying lip service.

    I worked at Maxis full-time

    Pros

    Good people, tide of new culture to change customer experience and service, earnest desire to stay focused on fundamentals to make the company great.

    Cons

    Big company trying to be as nimble as it can , ambition to be like an MNC, but still having to shed "local company" mentality. It can succeed if cultural shift is successful. Board needs to give top mgmt enough time. Transitory perception of top mgmt will cripple it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the resources that will make change happen: the employees, shareholders want contradictory things...nice dividends and long term profits. Don't be afraid to set expectations if the middle to long term plans require just that: time.
