    I have been working at Asia Pulp & Paper full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent compensation package/salary for people starting.
    Very Flexible on Schedule.
    Disorganized structure allows candidate have access to some very important functions(Gain critical experiences that will not be available to you when you join a company with regular structure).

    Cons

    Merged by different holding companies, no HR department , uses agency to hire new employees, many concerns cannot be addressed properly. If you a self starter you will be fine, if you are not, don't join this company. You will get very little help on training, and many time sensitive tasks requires decent amount of training before you can successfully complete them. You will be penalized if they aren't complete on time and no training will not be an excuse.

    Career path is not defined, but if you are capable you can create your own path.

    Advice to Management

    It is hard to management when there are multiple bosses who holds different ideas above management.

    Pros

    If you have the knowledge and skills in the related field, then no worry about the job security. You're very needed and you'll gain salutation from subordinates.

    Cons

    If you're good, that means you'll work harder as well. You work for the company as well as for those who are hired with highly paid but know nuts about their jobs. Compensation and your hard work won't be matching and you have no proper channel to convey the messages.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eyes opened and don't live on your own way of managing anymore. Try to study and see how MNC manage and succeed. Military-style management is totally not applicable in some regions. Standardize the recruitment procedures and make the entry requirements more stringent. Don't simply hire someone without knowledge/skills but just because that person is a relative or closed friend of a senior manager, VP, or PD.
