    Horrible toxic environment and culture! Don't be tricked into a trap!

    Pros

    Everybody has to pass the same quarterly KPI system which is common in recruitment practice.

    Cons

    - Horrible environment (micro-managing, no real leader, using the same old KPI system to measure success for every region without taking into account its different circumstances ) - Just want to use people there is no mentorship no training (HR is complied by interns) - As in a money-driven business, seems like the sole goal of this company is to recruit, use and then throw people away without even compensating properly (only send out bonus when quarterly sales passing 3 times payroll cost including tax) - All the promises before hiring was never redeemed or actualized. Everybody is lying and trying to trick people including line managers and HR.

    Pros

    no pros... please join other companies and don't be sweet talked by the Director and Managers

    Cons

    - They hire and fire fast, because they just need people to do the dirty work and managers get to reap the rewards and get your commission to hit their targets - don't expect to get any proper mourning during your compassionate leaves.. they have NO compassion at all and force you to work while mourning - managers there are the leftovers from the recruitment industries - go other places cannot make it, then come back to Peoplesearch.. like recycle bin or trash bin, take back the trash especially Senior Management and act like they have empathy, but they can terminate you on the same day and side the managers even though you have done nothing wrong and when these managers have been doing unethical sales - sexual harassment at workplace by the most Senior Managers/Directors is pretty common, yet company allow

    Good place to build foundation, before you utilise it at another organisation.

    Pros

    One of the best training schools for the industry, contributing to the success of other firms, because the work culture here does not really retain people. Sell your body, sell your soul, sell your life, you will do well here if you are committed. No, it's not just about working hard, it's working till you die at your desk kind of hard. Good internal CRM system. People here are generally quite nice, you will make some good friends here because you're pretty much 24/7 with each other.

    Cons

    Lousy commission scheme, employer CPF are also calculated into your commission threshold. Pushing the government's requirements on the employer to the employees is really ridiculous. Yes, I repeat, YOU NEED TO PAY FOR THE EMPLOYER'S CPF CONTRIBUTION, inclusive of the 3x threshold requirements for the company's commission qualification. To be honest, things are really quite fine besides the fact that you need to commit your ENTIRE life on the job.
