    Pros

    Casual and laid back working culture, no dress code, open communication.

    Cons

    Staff benefits, annual leaves, employee engagement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improves staff benefits. Increase employee engagement programme to boost staff morale. Probably to consider flexi working hours for the staff? Studies shows that staff will be more productive when they are happier.

    Pros

    Open discussion culture,good people to work with

    Cons

    Fast changing envirornment, your superior might lack of experience for his/her position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to QC when hire, especially for manager & above position. Have to ensure the people has the skill or experience that suit the position/ department. Total years of working experience with no experience for the position, will affect the company performance and is unfair for the subordinate.

    I have been working at P1 full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    P1 has an amazing work culture that echoes their Brand attributes - Relatively Young, Fast, Open and Collaborative. Overall a good feel at the end of a very long and stretched day. Divisions, departments and people often come together to contribute ideas, time and energy - Great place to learn and contribute fresh ideas.

    Cons

    Expect to be stretched, learning is mostly on job and get ready for dynamic and fast changes - Decisions are often made in a fluid and dynamic manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Structured and certified training would be good to up-skill people and their professional profiles.

    As Laxed As A Second Home

    Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Petaling Jaya (Malaysia)
    Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Petaling Jaya (Malaysia)

    I have been working at P1 full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Very laxed working environment with awesome and helpful colleagues.
    - Talents are being acknowledged greatly by superiors if we work smart to achieve our KPIs.
    - Very lean organization with office politics almost non-existent.
    - Muhibbah culture as everyone get along regardless of race.
    - Flexi hours of work and lunch hours; no penalization of any form.
    - Casual attire to office makes you feel motivated to work and you don't have to be who you don't want to be.
    - No micro-managing from superiors as they emphasize on us in completing the task and achieving KPIs/results.
    - Working environment is comfortable and conducive.

    Cons

    - Communication can experience breakdowns and delays between departments (some people just don't read emails).
    - Indecisiveness in making a crucial decision is evident in rolling out campaigns.
    - Transparency is questionable hopefully there will be improvements
    - Benefits is pretty basic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - HR should automate things in cloud, i.e MC application etc. Consider using/investing in better systems.
    - If the brand needs to be world class, please revise and improve benefits. External PR cannot sustain without internal PR's support.
    - Directions can often change on management level making employees confused.
    - Customer service need a lot of improvements especially in the online/digital front. This is 21st century where people take it to the social media!
    - Lack of company events that should usually be organized annually and regularly - annual dinners, trips, conferences etc.
    - Need to get out and do more CSRs, sponsorship's etc to make the brand known
    - Parking has been the bane especially for female junior executives who need to stay back as the distance to the car park pose a threat to the employee's security. HR need to remedy this by expanding or finding nearer alternative parking.
