    I worked at Charles & Keith full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good location (near MRT). Staff discount.

    Cons

    1. Relationship and the ability to please top management is valued much more than professional capabilities. 2. As a result of point 1, many people are not qualified for the job they do. They just anyhow manage and that's the reason so many really smart people left. My manager doesn't understand a single thing about my job and yet she tries to assign tasks that are completely irrelevant to my profile. Your true strengths are not appreciated here. 3. You will find A LOT people from the same families sharing the same surname to a great extent. So be careful with what you say to the person sitting next to you cuz she/he might be related to some unexpected managers. 4. Female-dominating world and a lot of gossiping and spying on Instagram. But you can always refuse to join them and be isolated from their world (which isn't a big problem for me) 5. Poor IT system which is about to crumble at any time due to the lack of basic IT knowledge in the management which rejects any improvements or changes. Force rebooting servers are a common phenomenon. Big red flag if you plan to join their IT/data teams. 6. Poor medical benefits, much less compared to market.
