      Learn a lot but no work life balance

      Nov 25, 2021 - AVP-Business in Singapore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - a lot of learning opportunities, really will grow during your time as long as you have capacity to deal with intense pressure to perform - good employee benefits - culture is forward looking, can vote on or highlight issues to mgmt and some are actually acted on - very good PR machine to help elevate the brand - mgmt care for employees safety during pandemic - always seeking innovation/improvements

      Cons

      - no work life balance due to unrealistic expectations and deadlines, which bosses will couch as "pushing the boundaries", OT is a constant - progression tend to be slow, gotta work yourself to the bone for recognition and promotion (and have to "market" your own achievements too) - superficial attention to mental health (e.g. wellness talks, employee perks); the fundamental problem of being overworked is not addressed properly and there is little/no safety in discussing mental health issues with senior/middle mgmt - HR leave employee welfare to managers to handle, dangerous especially if your manager is the toxic type. Be careful during resignation, make sure you know your rights cos HR will not help you.
