    I have been working at Sunway full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Diversified businesses in many industries giving the organisation a strong financial and business growth opportunity.
    Growth of business means opportunity for employees to grow in their career as well.
    Generally employees welfare is always being taken care of and most employees enjoy almost all industries benefits (medical, themepark, shopping malls, property, education, etc)
    When the company makes profit the employees would benefit from receiving higher bonus, sometimes above the industry's practice.

    Cons

    Sunway grew some a small company into a huge conglomerate it is today, many of the processes and policies need to be reviewed and improved constantly.
    All the management teams are very hands-on senior executives, and they may be very involved in every decision made, empowerment and trust in the employees in making decision could be better.

    Pros

    The people you work with are all very willing to teach and help you grow, both professionally and personally. Trainings were frequent to help employees upgrade themselves and opportunities are abound just waiting for you to grab them if you are proactive. Fantastic working culture with minimal office politics.

    Cons

    Challenges plateau after a while, and the tasks becomes less mentally stimulating.

    I worked at Sunway full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly and helpful colleagues
    Stepping stone in learning some of the tech

    Cons

    - No work life balance. During office hours it's your duty. Beyond that it's your initiative. You get punish if you did not do the initiative.
    - No accountability in middle management side. Lot of taichi experts who works there will pass the buck
    - Politics is brutal. You either play briliantly or you are casualty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have better renumeration to compensate the overworked staff. Implement OT payout. We are not working for charity

    I worked at Sunway as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I joined after the busy part of the year was over. The entire workplace was quite chill. The staff were very friendly. My superior was very kind and understanding.

    Cons

    Some of the task were not very interesting, which is expected during almost all internships. Pay was a bit low, which is expected too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It might be more helpful it there was a more structured internship.
