    Pros

    Nice friendly environment, like working in a one big family.

    Cons

    Uninspiring prospect for either promotion or self development. Financial remuneration not really competitive. Going through a period of uncertainty due to a recent takeover may be demoralising.

    Advice to Management

    The new management needs to engage the staffs more frequently and closely to rid them off negative and incorrect assumptions about the future direction of the company.

    I have been working at PROTON full-time

    Pros

    Provide lots of training which is good for career development.
    Lots of thing to learn especially in R&D division.
    Good place for fresh graduate but definitely not good for long term if you pursue high salary in career.
    Friendly people and supportive environment

    Cons

    Very hard to get promoted, politics everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Ask us to do cost reduction, achieved target (millions) but never give compensation/bonus to person who work behind the scene, only promoted vcr group which their job is only compiling all cost reduction done by engineers and present to top management.not fair if you ask me.
