      Pros

      Work life balance is great and encouraged, company values employees' well-being esp in pandemic in terms of flexible work hours and leave benefits. A lot of autonomy to do what you have planned for

      Cons

      Company is growing too big and thus a lot of bureaucracy and waiting time to get things like approvals.

      A company at crossroads after COVID19

      Pros

      - Known for having a strong branding in the industry and reputable. - Generally, the upper management are very warm and welcoming towards everyone. Most seniors in the office are approachable and willing to share their knowledge/experience. - Work-life balance? (Depends on the project/account assigned to the individual). Commendable non-monetary benefits. - A very good starting place for those aspires to do sales in the tech industry, with somewhat hand-holding guidance for fresh graduates. As for experienced hires, commission rates are good. - Networking with one another is very much encouraged. Also, some departments/teams are well-bonded. Company-wide get-together events are aplenty.

      Cons

      - For those who are in non-commission based role, the culture can feel pretty salesy. Strong emphasis on driving sales revenues and selling more to existing customers. Many sales stakeholders involved in an account/project from a tech perspective. - A myriad of products which seems to have no value-adding to customers but strongly marketed as premium. Client-facing roles can be expected to know a lot of these products and how to use them. - Previously, for graduates, salaries are below market rate of those majoring IT/CS. However, the rates might have improved in the recent few years. That said, career progression, together with salary hikes, seem relatively slow in comparison to other less reputable companies. - A growing obsession with IT certification lately. - Personally encountered some HR staff who do not act very professionally.

      Pros

      Good people, decent benefits, and work life balance

      Cons

      Leaning towards legacy tech in recent years, thus tough to attract talent. Company also grew too big, employee accountability and matrix monitoring becomes top priority, making it part of every staff's daily life, starting to feel like IBM.
