Good Workplace but unqualified / unprofessional Managers in Infrastructure (Do Not Join under IT Infrastructure)

Good Place to work but unqualified, unprofessional Managers are driving the Infrastructure .Those who are in the Infra Mgmt dont have any skill or experience what they are dealing with. Just like a robot someone press the remote they will jump and do that work.

Pros

Ok Ok

Cons

not a good place to work

I worked here for more than 1 year, direct boss changed four times, they never called you a colleague, and they divided the boundaries between you and us, less respect and more sense of dominance. -No direction in work and always moves the goal line -Long hour -discrimination idea shared in office, verbal abuse from manager When you resign, they discuss with you aggressively on whether you can stay until they recruit new joiner. The number of days of annual leave is pretty good, but that's it.

Almost perfect internship experience

This internship was during my polytechnic. The interview was in the call because that period I was in China. My department was at Chinatown, the work environment was clean and comfortable. The colleagues were friendly to me. Every month my department manger will treat the whole department dinner, including those interns like me.

Functional manager no experience with functional duties and still expect to lead is ?!?!

Functional manager's logic - not at table = not working - ego too big , cannot be wrong - no experience in functional role - forever correct - only want body bags at table

Good place to work

Alot of flexibility given (depending on who your reporting boss is) Personally not a good place for my career aspirations and growth. But it's a wonderful place for others. One of the better companies I've worked at.

Pros

Nice place to work

Nice place to work but lack of good growth options. Management needs to think about long term when it comes to employee growth and look at more options for their growth

Good Place to work

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English

tight reporting deadline

Some individual job tasks may not evenly distributed especially when quarter-end; bottlenecks at quarter end i.e. month-end closing, quarter end SOX compliance control, quarter-end reporting i.e. 10Q reporting and external auditor's requirement for supporting documents for review for their SOX certification

Pros

Stock based compensation, good salary and benefits, fun and work

Cons

long hours, few manual reporting, task may not evenly distributed
