    Pros

    Well developed curriculum. Good staff support at my centre. Motivated students that want to learn.

    I have been working at AEON full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    AEon has always been on the leading edge of technology in critical areas of power, housing and environmental science, and focuses its efforts in emerging markets around the globe. It provides the rare opportunity of being able to truly change the world for the better.

    Cons

    Developing infrastructure projects in emerging markets is always a challenge, particularly in the financial aspects. It requires creativity and resourcefulness, as well as patience and the ability to work with diverse elements in the areas of politics, culture and geography.

    Pros

    liked the group i worked with. worked hard but played hard. many knowledgable people in the group with differing opinions but group presented itself in a united front.

    Cons

    typical corporate environment with multilevel of management. as such it took time to get things approved and projects moving along.

    Advice to Management

    I think you should look within and promote within rather than drop placing management that is only working on processes and not doing the work nor know the reality of implementing the process.

    I worked at AEON full-time

    Pros

    They set you up with a furnished apartment. Pay is alright. You get insurance. Initial training is expertly well done.

    Cons

    This is no "go in, teach your lessons and go home" type of job. You are there all day and must do whatever meaningless task your management decides you should do (that could mean stapling/folding fliers for 3 hours or handing out fliers outside in the middle of January). Very often you are overworked and on Saturdays be prepared to teach 8 straight hours with a one hour lunch break somewhere in the middle. The environment is often very cold and corporate and can leaving you feeling like a robot more than a thinking and breathing human being. Also be ready to deal with superiors who see you (no matter your age) as little more than a lost college graduate that they can abuse for a couple years before you have to go back home.

    Advice to Management

    School managers tend to think only of sales and therefore do not understand the product they are selling or the struggles of teachers. This is the reason for head teachers, but it is not enough. It should be mandatory for managers and assistant managers to take initial teachers training as well as teach several classes on their own before they are allowed to manage a school.

    I have been working at AEON full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only good thing working in here is I have great colleagues that always brighten my days, and dealing with customers. It's so much fun

    Cons

    a) Low increment and bonus. Don't expect you will get high increment in this company. Even your bonus is really low.

    b) Micromanaging is really rampant in this department. They will find some fault on you and your staffs under your supervision. From the selling floor, your attitude and others. I still remembered they humiliate a staff through email and spread it to other Group Leader and Managers just because of his hair a bit long and keep some moustache. A I'm just wondering, why the heck they don't want to meet the staff face to face and talked to that staff about it.

    I noticed that most of the upper management people, their style of working, if they saw you doing something wrong, they never asked you in the first place on why you doing that, instead they will attack you non-stop. If you give the reason, they will still ask you to accept the counseling note, verbal warning or warning letter. Basically, your voice is useless even though you are Group Leader in the store that you manage

    c) Don't trust your managers in this company. If you tell your problem, or issue that involve in the outlet, they will spread this news to the upper management and in the end you will get attack by them. They may look nice in front of you, but behind you, they will backstab back.

    d) Group Leader that has salary around RM2000 and above, you are not entitled to get paid for overtime. You will work for free.if your outlet is currently lack of staff, they will ask you to perform full shift many times every month.

    e) If you work in Daiso, they will ask you to go set up another Daiso store that will open soon. If you give an excuse that you can't go, they will scold you and still force you to go. It was really exhausted tbh.

    f) If your work in Aeon, basically not just Daiso, get ready to be transferred to another store that is far from your home. If they want to transfer you, it's either an early sign for you that they want you to quit or promoted to high-level position.

    Advice to Management

    Please appreciate your staff, don't treat employees like a punching bag, listen to their problem. If you caught a staff doing something wrong, please let them to explain on their side, not straightly attack them non-stop and you never give them a chance to defend of their side.

    Daiso is a great place to work and shop, I have so much fun. But the management people is full with toxic people.
