    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at YTL Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good work life balance
    - Flexible working culture

    Cons

    - Wants everything cheap but extort the most out of the employees
    - Salary increment is not favorable ; performing staff and under-performing staff gets the same amount of increment
    - Medical benefits are horrible and a nightmare
    - Too much favoritism and there is no open door policy where you are free to give feedback to your bosses fearing you will the next target
    - No such thing as P&C even you go to HR ; you will their topic for lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Please rate your staffs performance based on their appraisal score and give increment based on what they have scored. I don't think its fair for a hardworking staff to be at par with one who doesn't show their work.

    "Good people, especially at ground level, but not enough cooperation or coordination between departments."

    I worked at YTL Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible office culture/times (but note that this really depends what department you are in - the front facing ones will be strict, plus depends on director/manager, so this does vary considerably between departments). Relatively flat structure. Good central office location (this is also a con though), with access to a lot of cheap and good food near petaling street area. If located in the data centre, will have parking provided plus nice landscaped area and new purpose built building. People are generally friendly.

    Cons

    May need to work evenings and weekends as needed. Bad traffic at central office location, plus (unless you are highly ranked), will need to secure own parking in the area. (This is not an issue if you are placed in the data center in Sentul.) Teams can be quite protectionist and do not share enough info with other teams. Requirements can change at short notice leading to changing deadlines. May be called upon to do a lot of things outside your job scope. (This can also be a pro if you're after a wide variety of experience)

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest in training plus plan career advancement and path for staff so that they are motivated.

    Pros

    Suit to my work experience and qualification, especiall in the Telecommunication Industry

    Cons

    working in YTL comms required a high dedication and more time in order its high expectation. None of news resources can handle the task given at its urgency based on company's demand. YTL expecting all new employees came into the company with their previous knowledge and skills as a package. Well, Thanks to god cause letting to work in YTL Communication.

    Advice to Management

    YTL has jus started it new wing (Telecommunication sector), so there improvement need to be done in the earlier stages especially the human resources requirement like tool, profesional appliance subject to job scope in the technical scopes, special fund allocation to support the front line technical team. A Strong commpany always prapred with a strong HR and finance ability.
