    I have been working at SEEK full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Trying to incorporate a lot of western startup and Agile culture into the company
    - Caring senior management
    - A lot of learning and role rotation opportunities
    - Open workplace
    - Flexible working hours
    - Relatively stable, good job security

    Cons

    - Too many people changes and structure changes within a year
    - Limited opportunities for employees to advance their career
    - Tech teams are relatively junior and lack of the right mindset and passion to learn new skills
    - The company is still in the midst of integrating both the JobStreet and jobsDB brands in Asia. Two brands were originally competitors and people who worked in there for long still have competing mindset, causing organisational silos and communication inefficiencies.
    - Inappropriate KPI or rewards were given to under-performing colleagues, which had unfortunately encouraged them to stick with their behaviour for job security

    Advice to Management

    - Actively listen and react to feedback from colleagues AT DIFFERENT CAREER LEVELS
    - Be bold to lay off incompetent colleagues or those who do not stick with company values
    - Seriously consider team personality and culture fit during recruitment
    - Provide good mentorship and guidance for colleagues regularly
    - Refine company values (right now they seem hygiene factors to many of us) and market segmentations.
