    I have been working at Telekom Malaysia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. People are Malaysians at heart, caring and really want the best outcomes.
    2. Leaders are positive and work closely together, we at working level do not see in-fighting among the top.
    3. Opportunity to move around different divisions ( vacancies advertised internally)

    Cons

    1. It's like working on a large ship - takes some time for nimble changes of direction or moving swiftly
    2. Becoming a bit Islamic - in head office, they broadcast the prayers over the intercom and then the Azan twice a day
    3. No hope of promotion once you are in as it's based on seniority.
    4. Current managers usually won't allow move to other divisions to pick up other skills / move away from current job

    Advice to Management

    1.Cut costs for unnecessary events....
    2. also General Managers should communicate more often on what top leaders want / expect.
    3. Please implement PRS Corporate Savings similar to how US companies match contributions for their retirement savings.

    I worked at Telekom Malaysia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Big company. Moving from one department can be like moving to a new company.
    The company had a vision that almost everyone understood and was committed to.

    Cons

    Not a con really; so many intelligent but insecure people.
    The culture was good and did not need any change. In fact, almost international in its management.

    Advice to Management

    Create and follow through on your vision. The previous CEO did that and it made the company great
