    SM Retail Inc

    (Current Employee)

    Pros* biggest retail industry
    * prestige
    * stable company,
    * benefits are ok. It has E Card, Leaves are convertible to cash, HMO
    * good training ground
    * will definitely take advantage of your management skills

    Cons* no internet access
    * frisking in and out of the office
    * outdated HR policies
    * out numbered staff
    * unpaid overtime for back office
    * too many stairs, cannot use the elevator
    * few equipments and facilities

    Advice to Senior ManagementCheck the HR policies, some of them are out dated and not applicable anymore in these times

    Hire more employees. Some employees are working double or longer since they have to do a job of 2 or more people. They lost some of the good ones since they don't feel they deserve their pay in commensurate to their work load.

    Make their offices conducive and inspiring to work at.

    Pull out all outdated and aged equipments. Update your facilities

    Make the working days 5 days a week or at least everyone gets an alternate Saturday off. Your employees have other life than working.

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