      Former Employee

      Old school mindset. Terrible leadership. People's careers go here to die.

      Jan 23, 2022 - Marketing Specialist in Singapore

      Pros

      Honestly hard to find anything much to say. Young people, those in their 20s, are great to work with. But we don't stay long. Usually 1-2 years and you leave.

      Cons

      Where do I start? The mentality is very old school here. Many old timers with arrogant leadership. They force their will on others and are always quick to blame. Many shout and yell at subordinates. If you have good ideas, you will not be heard or even worse, the bosses will take it and claim it as their own. I was in the media creative side and it's very messy. Our stories are very boring, the creative directors have a 1990s print style. Our videos are like channel 5 in the 90s. It's very cringe and everyone thinks they're gods gift to the world. You get worn down day by day. Young and talented people leave. Only those who cannot go anywhere else (oldies) and those who smoke their way to their senior roles remain. All pretend to work or disappear at key times while picking up huge salary and bonus. Only join if you are about to retire. The public should take umbrage at how their tax dollars used to fund these cronies is being wasted away.
