    Pros

    Allows employee with no real commitment or passion. Allows employees with no morals or integrity
    Allows employees to past time daily

    Cons

    Hardworking employees doesn't gets recognised however the opposite type gets 'reconigiton' and rewards. Employees whom worked 'long' time are supposed to be promoted and gets the due rewards or promotion even non performing over the hardworking peers.
    Too "Japanese culture' environment thou it's in Singapore.

    Advice to Management

    It's good and real if top management really gets their hands and legs dirty and see how does some of your directors, managers are really "working on the ground".
    Reality always gets filtered when it reaches top management.
