    I have been working at IMAPAC full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A very open organization structure, very good training, good growth opportunities and current management are trying their best to make employees valued

    Cons

    There is pressure and stress with deadlines that need to be achieved. Need to handle rejection a lot and at times a lot of learning is required if you want to understand the clients

    Advice to Management

    Try and diversify the events as it is difficult for someone not from a life sciences background

    I have been working at IMAPAC full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The training which is given by the team is very in depth and above par for most sales roles. If you perform you do get compensated well enough for it . Very comfortable and pleasant sales environment .

    Cons

    A bit of a too much SME mentality need to be a little more liberal with the technology upgrades and office equipment . Also need more team building activities where one can know each other better outside of the workplace

    Advice to Management

    Continue the way things are and do not change for the worse as there have been cases where employees have been ignored for the sake of growth.

    None at all, nothing that I could think of.

    Flawed management system and no prospect working in this company.

    I have been working at IMAPAC for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Empowering, fast paced and snazzy working environment. Senior management is open to new ideas and experimenting on new concepts. Love working with the young and dynamic team that full of can-do attitude. Monday breakfast is something I personally look forward to!

    Cons

    Though I'd recommend my own kids to work here...I have to be honest to say it's probably not suitable for people who are used big corporate's perks / pampering or who like to strictly follow procedures. Be prepared to blaze open a trail and create new best practices.

    Advice to Management

    Talent acquisition and retention are key to this business. Beware of Munchausen syndrome that robs attentions from star performers who are quietly slogging away. Don't take people who love working for Imapac for granted.

    I worked at IMAPAC

    Pros

    Good working environment. Awesome employees. Decent work culture. Good place to learn for freshers.

    Cons

    Unrealistic goals and targets. Boss needs to calm down. Low salaries and sometimes commissions arent paid on time. Clients, vendors and employees arent treated fairly.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees they ll take care of your clients. Be more flexible with your employees

    I worked at IMAPAC for more than a year

    Pros

    Well, good numbers of leaves. Good team on the ground. That is probably all.

    Cons

    A punishing culture. The only right way is the management's way. There is little guideline and very little space for negotiation. People tend not to stay and that probably explains a lot about the firm. You are left on your own with little guidance, even for newcomers to the industry. Hirer tend to hunt new graduate and entice them with beautiful promise. Advice to those who wants to try their luck in this company, reduce...

    I have been working at IMAPAC full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great products, most were launched as the first of its kind in the market years ago, so they enjoy the status of the "only" or the "most important" of its respective industry. Creative environment, fun culture, exposure to C level clients, supportive colleagues, very flexible. Good travel opportunities. Love the team travel as the company encourages leisure travel after business trip.

    Cons

    At times very stressful to meet targets, sometimes need to stay late to call Europe and US clients.

    Advice to Management

    Start and finish meetings on time.

    I have been working at IMAPAC

    Pros

    The interview process is creative, reflecting the company's culture. Good and frequent trainings, quick to implement new strategies, steep learning curve, direct involvement with new launch, high-profile customer facing, opportunity to rotate between departments, straight forward promotion pathway. Being part of a high growth company itself is exciting!

    Cons

    The company is small so nobody can be complacent, if you don't perform over a period of time, you may get fired. 10 reviews for a company with less than 15 people is hard to believe, but says a lot about potential vengeful ex-employee who may end up in this fate. You will be pushed to perform better and better as good is never good enough. So if you look for an easy and care free, not the place. Work and life balance...

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation for efforts than results, understand when the company is growing at such a fast speed, mistakes are unavoidable and should be more tolerated
