    I have been working at XL Axiata full-time (Less than a year)

    - casual dress code
    - energetic colleagues
    - huge advantage to develop self and to be promoted if you can get to be classified as talent
    - interesting internal company events

    Cons

    - development plans are only for selected talents which you have no idea when will you get to be selected as talents
    - average compensation & benefit package
    - high demand superiors
    - in average, it takes more than 2 years to get promoted
    - high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees. Listen and give space. Give clear directions and expected outcome, not just demand tasks to get done. Invest on your employees, not just on hiring expats. Improve non material compensation and benefit plans if you can't get to improve the salary.

    Pros

    Casual outfits with young people environment. Fast phase work and great place to learn especially in IT.

    Cons

    Salary and workload are not balance. Business unit and IT unit are not inline (blame game). Most of superiors are a boss type not a leader. They always running out of talent due to the workload that is too much with less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Management should pay attention for the work life salary balance.

    I worked at XL Axiata (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Good place to learn for young people with relatively high of salary.
    - Good talent development program
    - Good benefit for health insurance, BPJS and Pension
    - Nice environment for working and life balance with choices of activities anf communities.
    - Free parking in Graha XL HQ
    - Canteen/Cafeteria that sells many choices of food and drinks

    Cons

    - Too much gossips from senior employees that sometimes annoying and its not good for new or fresh graduated employee.
    - organization restructured that may happened more than once a year for same unit.
    - Performance evaluations that some times too political or subjective.

    Advice to Management

    Although company performance seems decreasing for this year, I still confidence the strategy is going to right direction.

    Transformation need more time and XL need leader to convince employees if the strategies is right. And i don't see that for current leader.

    Pros

    Young ambience, jeans and t-shirt everyday. Office location is very convenient. Good Health benefit. Lot of young people with cool ideas.

    Cons

    Small bonus due to company under performed in last 3 years. Many incompetent senior leaders hired / promoted politically. Politic is very strong. Performance appraised by like and dislike, nothing related to KPI achievements. A consumer company that already losing trust from its customers, because it does not care to customer experience & violate so many consumer rights.

    Advice to Management

    Change it back to professional company instead of political party. Try to gain back trust from customers even if it's hard to do. Need more competent & market knowledgable C-level.
