    Cultural suicide

    Director (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsEthic for hard work, getting work done.

    ConsTerrible mid- and senior management politics, everything is escalated before it can discussed. Not a culture of calling out issues, openness and honesty. Many of mid and senior level management levels have been with the company for 20 years, know the internal ways, but have little value on the external job market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWorry less about the culture of saving face and fancy innovation and more about what your customers pay for and having an honest and open place to work for the staff.

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

    Still traditional and not a very consumer-friendly company

    Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsYou'll get the chance to pick up a lot of people skills - managing bosses and peers etc. There are also really smart and good people inside that you can learn from.

    ConsSomewhat long working hours doing work that sometimes seems "extra". Company doesn't seem to have a very human touch in dealing with consumers - and similarly with employees. Lots of hierarchy and layers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake some clear choices - do you really want to innovate? Or just make money? If you want the former, it's time to start hiring hustlers and real engineers - you don't outsource everything.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
