    I have been working at Bursa Malaysia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A few good men, still available, some silver lining in directionless clouds

    Cons

    Concur with others who frankly gave negative reviews of Bursa. Directionless, subjectivity over objectivity, worst career experience over years of working in both local & foreign listed corporates. Please don't consider Bursa, unless you want one step forward, 10 steps backward in morale, confidence and trust on your supervisors... just down hill slide

    Advice to Management

    You recruit staffs who are proven subject matter experts or leaders, then you never give proper direction and compare us to fresh graduates? We comes with experience, and best practise which you should at least listen instead of ridiculing us... waiting to move on from here. Very dissapointed with Asean Market Place, period.

    I have been working at Bursa Malaysia full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - Nice colleagues - Free parking for staff - Some benefits are great (e.g. ESOS, EPF contribution)

    Cons

    - Prepare to drown in never ending paperwork and administrative matters - Management has unrealistic goals and ambitions (e.g. wants to be the best in ASEAN) but refuses to address manpower issues hence staff are overworked - Staff under 35 years old do not stay for long due to high turnover at lower levels - Very slow promotion and low increments in salary - Management is very stingy and seems to be on a constant...

    Advice to Management

    Address the root cause of the problem which is overstaffing in certain departments, and understaffing in others. Stop being so stingy with your employees and show that you appreciate them. Get rid of deadwood. Revamp the entire HR department and change the workplace culture.

    I worked at Bursa Malaysia full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    1. If you get in the right department, and performs well, you will be rewarded. 2. Free parking. 3. EPF contribution is high.

    Cons

    1. A lot of paper pushing. 2. Depending on where you get placed, work life balance can be zero to none, OR, wonderful. 3. Not much progressive initiatives. 4. General employee morale a lot down.

    Advice to Management

    The top management needs to start having more discussion with the mid management and the market (by a lot more) to avoid having a disconnect between its vision and reality.

      I have been working at Bursa Malaysia full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Staff are friendly and bosses are approachable and informal. There is no protocol to approach the big bosses so the lower and middle working level have a lot of opportunity to learn directly from the big bosses.

      Cons

      Not enough resources which leads to severe overworking. Bosses choose to ignore the fact that the structure is top heavy and that there are not enough resources to assist middle managers. Some middle managers are expected to do 2-3 executives' work due to no executives to assist. Multiple resignations throughout the year because of this but the HR and Management refuses to make changes. The politics here is overwhelming....

      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Bursa Malaysia full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Industry branding, unique employer which makes an impact on the nation.

      Cons

      Working environment could be better. Moving people to perform outside of their core competencies is sending message for them to leave.

      Advice to Management

      Manage talent with care. Good talents are hard to come by, and any organizational change should not lead to mass exodus of experienced talented people.

      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.
