    My impression of Pacnet

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDid not experience any major pro's

    ConsRoles will be far larger than discussed at the interviews, many staff have left or lost their jobs due to merge of different brother and sister companies in 2012 and 2013. Not a warm place, offices drab and looks like the receivers have been in to clean up. Staff not communicating, just a ghost town feeling, odd place. Asian culture due to head office being in Singapore and Hong Kong, so a real asian click there, not very friendly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more up front about history of the company as far as job losses, and future risks. Also do something to make people feel welcome and part of something special. It feels like the office at the end of the world.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A growing phase at Pacnet

    Senior Manager (Former Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsGood organization, good management, great policies and a nice atmosphere to work in. Nice work culture and good inter personal interactions.

    ConsInter department transactions were slow and time consuming. Department heads need to be independent in the decisions and take responsiblity.

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