    Pros

    Central area. Friendly colleagues. Work-life balance. Good Bonus.

    Cons

    Not much career advancement. Work are routine, systematic to a state you gets too comfortable and becomes lazy. Good for those who just wants to retire. Bad for those who wants to move up the corporate ladder, gets drag down by your surroundings. You will meet obstacles for new ideas/innovations.

    Advice to Management

    Management should take a look on innovation. What is new out there. Old practices needs to revamp/replaced/reinvent.

    The job in there are quite relaxing, stress less, easy, able to read books and training provided. Colleagues are very helpful if you encounter any problems.

    Pros

    It'd be good if you have a good boss to provide guidance and being supportive towards the work that are on hand. Office environment is acceptable. Good experience to explore and meet the different views of the employees.

    Cons

    Work-life balance could be an issue due to the heavy workload at times. Colleagues will try and protect themselves from additional workload or when trouble arises. Mix with the wrong group of people and you might find yourself at the edge of the mountain top. Inflexibility in certain work procedures results in wastage of time instead of improving work efficiency. Will be expected to produce top quality work while company uses stone-age technology - LotusNotes, Office 2000.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more supportive and appreciative in terms of the work presented by employees. Suggestions should be taken into consideration. Traditional and top-down management culture should be revamped.
