I worked at Professional Advantage full-time
PA pushing its team to work as best as they can. There is the opportunity to switch roles based on market demands and skill sets.
There’s been a strong shift to cut cost by moving the workforce to Manila and little investment in developing the company’s culture locally. Other than being a “high performing workplace” a euphemism for “work stupidly long hours” to be acknowledged or considered for a pay rise, there is a lack of belief or understanding around cultivating or maintaining a culture. Team building is rare, and Christmas parties rarer still. It feels like this company is stuck in the 90s in the way it recruits, manages and treats its team.
Advice to Management
Ask people what they want from the company and listen to them. Hire more Millenials.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Professional Advantage.
Very relaxed and informal process. Nothing about work and a lot about interpersonal skills and communication skills. Also included a written part. Nothing intimidating about the interview. The interviewers were very kind and friendly. This help to lighten the mood during the interview.
