      Surprisingly strong culture

      Pros

      Management values work-life balance and cares for employees welfare - staff welfare committee constantly issues new perks. Strong company culture and clear company goals that's comprehensively communicated and understood by all. Top management is competent and astute. Surprisingly different compared to the rumours about 'toxic culture', which may have been because of previous managements. Current management is pretty good.

      Cons

      Not much. Career progression may not be as rapid as other dynamic MNCs

      Impatient HR, riddled with IT problems,

      Pros

      21 days annual leave was a nice touch

      Cons

      - HR was impatient, always emailing for documents and requesting for responses within a very short time. - Office laptop issued from Day 1 could barely run the video software I used for work, ended up using my personal computer to do work across my time there. - In the 9 months in the job, IT services only issued various reasons why my laptop would need more time to be replaced - Intranet is unintuitive, slow and prone to crashing, making simple employee tasks like applying for leave, submitting claims, and applying for benefits difficult.

      Can retire here

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits are great. And if you have a great team head and you do your job. Basically you can retire here with the benefits, ie: great number of leaves etc.

      Cons

      It depends on your team head and if she/he is not very well liked. It’s doom for you and the team and HR basically are just note takers. Nothing much can be done

      It's not too shabby.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You learn from some of the best people in the industry and even though learning is fast-paced, there is always something new for one to pick up; skills, knowledge, etc. It's a good place for rookie journalists to hone their reporting skills.

      Cons

      Too much politicking in some departments.

      Pros

      Majority of colleagues are great to work with. Senior managers are pretty open-minded
