    Pros

    Great place if you're not striving for much. People here really hug their JDs tightly and do only what is needed. Work-life balance easily achieved if u do that.

    Cons

    Gets frustrating if u're a slightly more responsible. Even more so when u're a responsible person without a big title. Be prepared to get blamed & fight back for everything. Think GE - PAP vs Opp.

    Pros

    Nothing great to shout about...

    Cons

    Benefits not competitive enough as compared to other giant telco and ICT companies in MY!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more sensitive on the local market needs and can't always benchmark against SG practices and other policies as it won't work in MY context market environment. Else, you won't be able to retain good talents and may losing them very fast within a year!
