    Pros

    Fun and vibrant working environment. Great colleagues.

    Perfect place for one who's intending to just cruise through for the rest of their career.

    Employee benefits are very good, so this covers the drawback of below market salary.

    Cons

    Management lack the drive and vision to stand up to competition. Lacking a strong development team to innovate like during the early years of M1.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A sleeping giant. There are some 'clots' that needs a major shake-up to clear. Time to wake up and stop living in the glory & success of yesteryears.

    Pros

    For up to senior manger level, one will still enjoy good work-life balance.
    Friendly environment to work and learn in.

    Cons

    Unless someone high up likes you, your promotion could be slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should treat the annual appraisal more seriously. Using the appraisal grades to determine variable bonus payout and annual increment would be the fairest tool

    Pros

    A place suited for employees who strive to leave on time- a very relaxing environment. Great culture, and good and well-meaning colleagues.

    Cons

    Salary is way below market rate, company is always haphazardly trying to cope with competitors, lack of innovation, lack of training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the salary is pegged to the work-life balance, then it's probably fair. However, if the company wants to grow, they should pay more to retain and hire talent.

    Pros

    Big company,young & vibrant initially
    Bonus is quite ok
    Handphone allowances

    Cons

    Unluckily to be under a female boss who are very judgemental and biased..She promotes all her favourite staff and outright blacklisted all the staff that she don't like.That being said,it is only in the call center part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff leave for a reason.It was a great company to start.Hope to see more 2 way communication between management and staff.

    A good employer for worklife balance.

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Assistant Manager  in  Singapore (Singapore)
    Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Singapore (Singapore)

    Pros

    It is a pro family environment with sufficient worklife balance. Thus, the staff turnover rate tends to be quite low and stable. There is also adequate job security even in such uncertain times.

    The workload is managable. There is significantly less office politics as compared to the other companies in the same industry.

    Cons

    The company seems to have many low level ranks and promotion being typically slow. As such, young and ambitious individuals would find that career progression is slow due to the many layers of hierarchy in the company.

    The basic compensation package together with the bonus payouts are lower as compared to industry norms as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Disbursement of increments and bonuses should be more performance-based, as with promotions.

    Pros

    The only thing that kept me going was the support that we get from some of our immediate superiors.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of deadwood and bad decision maker.
    Doesn't give a hoot on what the impact will be to the staff the bottom of the ladder.

    Pros

    Some senior management competent and nice to work with. Benefits not bad. Most colleagues from mid-level downwards nice.

    Cons

    Bad senior management make things difficult for competent management and employees. Bad decisions forced top-down. Internal operations messy. Good employees overloaded. Bad employees liked by "important" management get away with everything.
