    Pros

    The people are great to work with depending on department and leader too. Training is provided and processes are in place with some areas of improvement. Benefits, not bad and salary can be considered competitive among the oil & gas companies. Good location, away from KL traffic and nearby public transport - LRT, Buses and KTM.

    Cons

    Slow on promotion. HR management/services needs improvement. An international organisation but with a typical government linked organisation style of getting things done. Very conservative and still has that "boss" and "machai" culture.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from successful companies on how to manage your people better. Diversity, equal opportunity, empowerment, recognition and promotion helps.
