    Establish ownership and responsibility for given task
    Good remuneration, competitive pay scale in relative to other companies in similar field,

    Cons

    Less or no improvement on position
    Independent learning and improvement on skill without guidance may reduce efficiency
    Ground worker view may not reach top hierarchy management.
    People who does talking rather walking get more attention, high achiever may shadowed by layer of middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Although having good working policy, top management supervision on condition and well being of ground/field workers highly advisable rather depending on statistical reports or middle management reports.
    Decision or request from middle management or HODs should be agreed from operational staffs (those who really client/customer facing) by team meeting, otherwise investment may yield no/less benefit in long run

    Pros

    The office environment is nice. The senior management is good and upholds the company values. Enjoyable staff events are organised.

    Cons

    Depending on which company & department, there may be no career progression, high stress, poor middle management, no improvement. Middle management often ignores company values. Lack of proper procedures and process. Lack of documentation in some departments. Absolutely no improvement or action taken by the bosses despite asking them for help many times over years.

    Advice to Management

    Please take care of your staff and spend more time talking to them. Please implement suggestions raised by staff.

    Pros

    Colleagues are helpful and friendly. Working environment is conducive. Interns are treated like like permanent employees as you can join the training and attend external conference sponsored by company. Interns also have high autonomy in planning and executing the assigned projects.

    Cons

    So far I didn't see any downside based on my personal experience.
