    I worked at Bursa Malaysia full-time

    Pros

    Good start for newbies to learn about the capital market. Make use of it to learn. Long serving staff stay though some have remained at Manager level for more than a decade, satisfied to get by.

    Cons

    Midlevel management lacking in numbers. Lopsided distribution of work when too many in senior tier delegate paperwork to midlevels. Junior tier not experienced or reluctant to take on 'more than what they are paid for'. How will they learn?
    Politics and favouritism clearly exist. If out of favour it will be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Set a professional standard. Speak to all with respect regardless of rank. Reprimand constructively.

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

    Pros

    Reputable company (good on CV), plenty of trainings and seminars, great benefits, stable industry (stock exchange is always profitable).

    Cons

    Lower base salary compared to commercial/industrial average, lack opportunity to progress, GLCs culture, mind-boggling pointless and wasteful meeting over simple matter.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on staff concerns rather than shareholders. 50% of the shareholders are Government-linked Investment Corporations (GLICs), which are not motivated by profit-maximizaton

    I have been working at Bursa Malaysia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Not too heavy workloads, can have worklife balance
    2. Free car park in buidling
    3. Better than average bonus, despite lower than other financial institutions

    Cons

    1. No clear direction where the organisation is heading to
    2. Too many paper works / reportings works to be done at each business unit level
    3. Business units have to bear the responsibility of organisng CSR activities (part of KPI), instead of making it as an organisation wide event
    4. Staff at high management / management level may not have the required relevant experience fit for the position
    5. Staff with higher pay and position may work much less than the staff with lower pay and position

    Advice to Management

    1. Having a clear direction as in to where the organisation will be heading to is relevant.
    2. Have to improve human capital management to ensure all staff are working efficiently and effectively
    3. Emphasize more on developing staff because they are the main asset of the organisation.
