    I have been working at Wilmar full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is certainly a job that fits my interests. I just have to wait and see.

    Cons

    Wilmar has many affilations and I am sure it would be a pressure situation

    Advice to Management

    Did not go into a lot of specifics. Maybe that was my fault.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    NO WORK/LIFE BALANCE AT ALL. You have to eat, drink, sleep Wilmar. No matter how hard you work or whatever genius idea/solution you have, they are never satisfied, never a "thank you", pat on the back, just negativity.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage. Training, training, training. Maybe back off on the coffee or whatever it is that makes you too intense or self-absorbed to care.

  5. "Very good customer service support, but no training support for Sales Representatives."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    For the most part, everyone is very nice and supportive. There is a positive energy and attitude at this company. There are very few reports, but still an accountability to manage your account base. They compete well against their biggest competitor.

    Cons

    There is no training or professional development offered. Until a new DSM came on board, there were no Monday morning calls or regular communication by management. The base pay is very low and is non-negotiable. In order to significantly impact your commissions, you really need to grow overall sales tremendously, which probably takes 6-12 months at least. There is no good month and bad month unless you happen to have a huge sale, which is rare.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a training process and offer an intranet site of information and support materials, as well as links to useful forms or email addresses.

    I have been working at Wilmar full-time

    Pros

    Flexible as it is based on projects

    Cons

    No clear communication on job scope, and a lot of ambiguity, leading to chaos in the near future.
    People at the managerial role, honestly, don't know what they are doing.
    Lack of communication to the people at the ground, leading to inefficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Have a clear business plan, and employ people who have managerial experience, or send the current people for training.

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Demanding management with totally no proper communication with staffs. Everything starts with berating staffs based only on visual inspection and assumptions. Have no Work-Life balance. Early clock out assumed that they are lazy and have no passion for the company. Top management self-justify a lot, and everything is done via reprimanding.

    Require 100% independence in the job with 0 guidance from peers, by justifying that this will depict the passion for the work.
