    Cons

    I can’t say that this can be classified as a ‘Con’ as maybe there is room for salary reviews.

    I worked at Frontier Software full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Great office location in the PH. - No overtime. - Great work-life balance.

    Cons

    - OVERBEARING AU management. - VERY old system. - NO training. - PH office is ALWAYS DIRTY because AU management refuses to hire a permanent cleaner. This shows how stingy the company is and why so many people resign. - NO salary increase. - NO bonus. - Mandated to take 3 days off your annual leave entitlement for the December office shutdown. 15 annual leave entitlement minus 3 means you actually only have 12...

    Advice to Management

    The reason why the QA department in the PH office has such a high attrition rate is because the company is not up to market standards. - Salary increase is NOT competitive. - No product training. - No career growth. - Performance reviews are ALWAYS DELAYED. - The same management problems from 2013 still occur in the present. This is based from the employees that have been there for 5 years.

    I have been working at Frontier Software full-time

    Pros

    Great Job security. Relatively flexible hours.

    Cons

    Takes too long for changes to be implemented for a new or a change in role as top management drag these issues out for months/years. Very limited opportunities to move up the ladder. Most management have been with the company 20 years or more. People are often given opportunities to move to other areas based on management letting the weaker links go so not to upset the team structure..... Team assets get less opportunities...

    Advice to Management

    Recognise your assets better & reward them accordingly with reference to new position opportunities & decent salary increases. Create more opportunities for staff & attempt to deal more strongly with non-performers.
