    I'd give ZERO star if Glassdoor has that option

    Pros

    Casual office and friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    CEO is rude and using very unethical business practices. He got me to join the company with good promises and grant visions but then I found out everything was just the smokescreen. I can understand that as a business person, making a profit is the top priority. But the CEO make it the #1 priority in the expenses of moral values and business ethic. When I found that out and decided to resign, he said that I was too naive and being crooked like him was the real world and was the WAY to get rich.

    Pros

    Good environment & colleagues Friendly atmosphere except for the boss Desmond Ong.

    Cons

    Boss was very rude. Gave a lot of empty promised and didn't uphold what he said. Curses a lot and has a ridiculous dateline for the tasks given. Would always contradict with his own view and change the work at his own whim. Its very hard to work with an arrogant boss who doesn't listen to a single word from the employee.

    Only work here if you can survive the worse

    Pros

    flexible working hours, higher pay than average and start-up dress codes

    Cons

    Desmond is one hell of a boss, he calls you at midnight to fix something minor or just to shout at you at something else another colleague did. Has no respect for people, has terrible tempers and mood swings. He changes his mind like every 5 mins. Prefers to deal with the male employees only, giving no respect to his women employees. He sells this motivational crap but doesn't practice it on his own. He makes money by scamming other people into thinking they can make money online.

    A bad boss is not good for morale

    Pros

    Relaxed fun colleagues who are in the same age. Easily accessible location of work

    Cons

    The CEO is downright rude, and not able to steer the company properly in day to day direction. Job scope and daily task changes according to his whims and fancy and there is no way to discuss this as a team or as part of a structure.

    Pros

    My colleagues were great. I enjoyed the atmosphere very much. There was an informal feel to it all. We wore casual clothes and lunch hour was a nice time to chat and get to know your colleagues. It's a very small company (as of writing) and hence it is a nice personal environment which you might miss in a larger company.

    Cons

    The CEO does not treat his employees with the respect they deserve. Apparently earlier on in the starting of the company he was more relaxed. However, things were different in my time there. He never came and said "hello" to the new interns. He found an error in one of his project managers work and humiliated him by making all the employees come around that project manager's computer and see what errors he made. In the process he swore at everyone present and also spoke derisively and rudely towards them. He asked for things within deadlines that are not very realistic. He often changed his mind. Asking for A, then when A is done, asking why A was done.

    Challenging But Growing Experience

    Pros

    Working with ChromaBit will challenge you to think deeper and be more analytical. You may feel pressured to wear multiple hats but this makes you a better person/employee inside & outside the company. Some things are new and hard but it's definitely one where you lean to grow and enhance your expertise. I am working offshore, and the management & other team members had been always considerate of my schedule. I saw the growth of the company and how the challenges has been positively addressed. It was worth of my 6 years with the company.

    Cons

    High turn over of roles, but this makes everyone inside the company more flexible.

    Pros

    -No office politics -challenging but fun to work in -Boss really treated everyone like family -traveling for work :)! -Flexible hours/work from home

    Cons

    -travel outstation on weekends I get why some reviewers here are saying bad things about this company, it’s because they didn’t do their job? The boss is easy going and give you opportunities if you do your job correctly!
