    Pros

    I am still thinking what can I put here when there's not much to mention about the pros.

    Cons

    Too much controlled and influenced by the parent company. Old school culture where u got to be in office no later 8.30, lunch hour 1-2, etc. not much freedom. no sexy benefit for the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Buckle up!

    Pros

    Interesting field of work. Bonus is very good. Lots of knowledge. Good inter-department relationship.

    Cons

    Very conventional in working habits. Loves to ask for opinion but none was taken seriously. Career opportunity is still depending on seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Please ensure that if ready to have a new wave of management to lead, please listen to those newly appointed.

    I worked at POS Malaysia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family like work environment,
    Lots of potentials - e.g.vast retail networks needed to be more "productive",
    Most lower levels are surprisingly loyal and willing to go extra mile,
    Good work life balance in some areas,
    Some great ideas from lower level and middle mgmt.

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic processes suppressed intrapreneurial behaviour hence innovation lacking,
    Slow paced in some areas,
    Middle managers are mostly dis-engaged due to lack career path development and their ideas are not considered,
    Passive aggressive behaviour amongst top management.
    Decision making not straight forward as need to refer to significant "stakeholders"
    Pay & benefits are at lower scale hence hard to retain talents.

    Advice to Management

    Need stability at No 1.
    Trust your staff more but penalise them heavily if they abuse the trust - this way decision can be speed up with less bureaucracy,
    Engage lower to middle mgmt more,
    No 1 need to act more as a coach rather than fault-finder.
    Management needs to show respect to their people

    Constant leadership change, organization restructurings, political bickerings and silo protectionism amongst the drawback for Pos Malaysia. The divide can often strains relationships and hamper productivity and unison.

    Top management has to seriously resolve the terrritorial culture of the hundred over year old organization. They need to be more strategic than just meeting short term aims.
