    Pros

    Great learning opportunities, company is growing and is in continuous need of great people.

    Cons

    Due to rapid growth, the workplace is very crowded with more than 1 person sharing a cubicle meant for a single person. As an introvert, this lack of quiet space made it very difficult to work.

    Advice to Management

    It would be beneficial to rent a larger space or allow a greater number of employees to work from home. Over-crowding is not conducive to good work habits.

    Pros

    Pros? They pay you on time. Benefits are ok. Can't really think of anything else good.

    Cons

    Management seems to promote laziness. You only get promoted if you have connections or brown-nose. People are not in jobs appropriate to their skills. No consistency in pay. New hires frequently get paid more than existing employees as it is left up to the hiring manager to decide your salary. HR does not get involved n the hiring process except to process the paperwork at the end. Provide no assistance with career guidance. Not everyone is allowed to work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Start a fair and equal process for hiring - involve HR from the start all the way through to selection. Be consistent with salaries - start all new employees at the bottom of the pay scale, not some at bottom, some at middle and some at top. Make sure people's skills match their jobs. Start promoting from within - too many jobs are filled with people's friends and existing employees are left to stagnate in a job that is not in line with their skills. Don't post jobs externally until all internal applicants are exhausted; should not look outside when there are people inside that are qualified.

    Pros

    Free food in the kitchen

    Cons

    They dont hire the staffs properly. Lots of the staffs lied in their resume. They have to hire temp staffs to patch up their lousy management. Management ie, regional manager, business manager are rude, bullies, not professional at all.
    Even their hr is dodgy.

    Advice to Management

    Wonder whether the top management really care when the regional managements are already suck in handling staffs

    Pros

    President knows just about every one's name on sight - forward thinking, great sustainable policies and direction and you're never thrown under the bus by the executives.

    Cons

    Too many hours and not enough support from finance teams - we're all one company.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your peoples' efforts more - go out and see what they are doing - don't just jump on board a 'good job' email - find it and start your own.
