    If you want to retire and come on time and leave on time. Bad place for capable professionals

    Incapable leadership and unqualified HR folks. Poor increment, no communication between the top and the ground. Middle management sucks.

    Pros

    work-life balance, employee share scheme, okay benefits

    Cons

    A lot of ex-military man in the leadership - they have their own "army" way of thinking and talking and it can feel like you're in the army sometimes.
    Office culture - most of the operations people are hardworking and very nice colleagues. But the middle and upper management have their own cliques and are still living in a pre-iPhone world. Can feel very frustrating at times.
