    I have been working at ASTRO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meal allowance, free parking, free Astro subscription (certainly lah), many events/ free gifts/ employee discounts... those who 'love' celebrities, you may have chance to see them...

    Cons

    Not a flat organization, thus some employees may feel the gap between the SA (and below) position with those AVP (and above) position. Besides don't be surprised, as from outside/ in media may look like this company is 'pretty advance' but truthfully...

    Advice to Management

    It's be great as we undergo the digital transformation, the organization as well become more flexible/ flat organization. Treasure your employee (ALL), not just those 'high' post and dare to embrace new ideas -- this apply to all dept.
