    Progressive tech together with progressing old boys' club

    Pros

    Fast-paced tech environment that enables you to learn tons and work for a startup with a purpose and a name in Malaysia. Exciting projects and upcoming initiatives which is great to be part of. Very collaborative environment from the ground up until the team lead level. There's a lot of place for personal initiative and it's very appreciated.

    Cons

    Depending on the team, there's quite a bunch of finger-pointing instead of 'let's fix this' mindset. It feels that there's a competition between teams so that god forbid anyone says that someone else is not doing their job. Politics and conflicts within and management and between HODs often spill out on other team members. Too many meetings in a day that leave you no time for proper focus on actual work, so when you are at a manager level and urgent things are piling up, you end up working at night quite often. This is contributed to by the fact that big projects are launched without proper planning, things are piling up without proper management of people's time and resources, and zero consideration to employee work-life balance. Most of the times when the CEO says something, everyone has to jump up and run, regardless whether the request is reasonable or not.

    Sprint mode creates opportunities, but is not for everyone

    Pros

    My team is super supportive and will help whenever help is needed even if it is not within their job scope. It is very fast-paced and the company is at a growth spurt stage which gives new things to learn every day. My team leaders are very understanding and friendly, and 1:1 discussions with leaders are a consistent practice to focus on career growth. The career conversations are never set aside no matter how busy they are. No problems with WFH, there is constant communication and trust that allows this kind of flexibility. It is very diverse as there are so many different nationalities that give an international experience in a local company.

    Cons

    Sprint mode is not for everyone. I end up working overtime almost every day and it is hard to get work off my mind. Large percentage of the company is young, hence lack experience in some areas that leave us fumbling in the dark. A lot of streamlining between departments have yet to be done so it can be frustrating. People tend to use start up as an excuse to do things in random ways. But despite wanting to increase flexibility and speed as a start up, process streamlining seems to make things more complicated and more levels of approval required. The constant change in direction, pace and pressure leads to high turnover even at senior levels which ends up management throwing money to get them to stay. Most of learning is on the job, there is no proper training program on the ground yet. Things are messy, but if you can adapt and overcome, you can grow.

    Hustle Culture

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn new things and grow everyday in terms of knowledge and also position, if lucky enough. Majority of people are friendly and anyone is free to provide good ideas to grow the company. Recommended for those who hate routine office jobs and want to make changes.

    Cons

    Not recommended for those who are not adaptable with sudden changes and have soft character. Certain processes are still not in place. There are times that we spend many days doing something but direction may change 360 degrees. Sometimes overloaded with work. Not fast enough? End up working even 14 hours per day! Due to hustle culture, a lot fight to prove themselves worthy. Everything is about KPI only and people's worth is about how much revenue they are generating or how talented they are. Not much human value seen. If you are zero, don't bother getting noticed. You should just leave already. Friendliness may just be like a façade but deep down, we do not know what are their main intentions. Favoritism and 'gang' are there. If you are not in a 'gang' , no one cares about you. Sink on your own or they will be gladly to sink you down too if you are not their favorite.
