    I worked at CIMB Group full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, good number of annual leaves, great support from the group overall for work operations (especially from HQ), conducive training site with pleasant environment, great training modules, good coaching and guidance in work operations*

    Good experience gained as you are exposed to business owners, successful individuals, and deal with different kinds of people. Great 1st job for any fresh graduate.

    *depends on who your manager is though.

    Cons

    1. Phone parking toll petrol benefits are on reimbursement basis (parking petrol toll must be justified with sales otherwise can't claim, phone no issue can claim every month)

    2. Slow process to get namecards, stationery, Staff ID Tag, user IDs for work operations.

    3. Strong hiearchy presence

    4. Performance of trainers can vary...some trainers are not good...some are okay...few are excellent.

    5. Career opportunities / advancement can be hard to come by if you don't make effort to get noticed by key people

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at CIMB Group (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great place if you like fast-paced and stimulating in malaysia. Bonus can be generous esp in treasury, CF and CCS dept

    Cons

    Highly political, back-biting culture. Most IB departments demand long hours. Employee motivation too dependent on pay rather than training, and personal value of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate employees other than pay.

    I worked at CIMB Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I would say it's the best company to build your career foundation. They are the first to implement anything new in the market, so you can learn a lot there and get more exposure..Good bonus. High performance culture. People are motivated. Great place if money is important. Working hours is rather flexible, as long as tasks are completed on time.

    Cons

    Long hours. No work life balance. Too competitive within the organisation. No free riders. I still remember when they are aggressively expanding their business globally, we were sleeping in the office to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Good place for training. I would say it's the best company to build your career foundation. They are the first to implement anything new in the market, so you can learn a lot there and get more exposure.
