    Pros

    The only pros of working in this office is the free food clients send from time to time.

    Maybe you get to go to a couple of pretentious events too.

    Cons

    This review is on the Malaysian branch. I believe other branches are doing extremely well.

    This company sucks the life out of you. Too much politics and favouritism going on. Backstabbing is something you would face every day if you do join. Fake is the best word to describe this place. There is no such thing as "teamwork".

    The office is so quiet you can literally hear a pin drop. No music, no talking, you feel like you've travelled back in time to an era no one would want to live in.

    Everyone's on edge and yelling is their only form of communication.

    No overtime but expected to work long hours with not even so much as a pat on the back.

    Seniority plays a big role in this office and anything your senior says goes. (even if it's wrong)

    Do not expect any guidance or SOP or training to be provided. You are on your own. All rewards go to those senior even if you're the one who did all the work.

    They do not encourage you and try to stunt your growth.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your employees. Stop trying to suffocate them.

    Think long and hard before you give someone a manager title. Make sure they actually do the job.

    The turnover is so high. In a year roughly 14 people have quit. Some things have to change! Stop micromanaging every single thing your employees do. As long as they do their work, leave them alone. No need to pick on the times when they took an extra 5 minutes for lunch when they stay back extra 3 hours on a regular basis.

    Be humble. Treat everyone equally no matter their age.

    Some intense restructuring is needed, especially in the sales and finance department.

    And just like what would happen in a dictatorship if someone has been there for too long and the company is just going backwards and you see that people under their management keep quitting.. Its time for them to go. Doesn't take a genius to figure that one out.
