So far every morning got meeting

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
So far Every morning got meeting and waste our time. Because kept scolding people just don’t like the environment and feel that didn’t respect to the employee.

Ge works you hard

Long hours and high kpi in customer service role. It is a very chinese culture company. There are follow ups to be done after work that can stop at 8pm at night. Do expect putting 10-11 hours at work. Hectic, fastpaced and very challenging

Improving not fast enough

Tiresome place. Unequal allocation of work. Long hours for some. Nothing to do for others. Poor communication. Work load can be nightmarish during closing

Fun and casual

Working at GE has been a great experience with demanding bosses that challenges you to be the best version of yourself. Solid work life balance with decent pay.

Average workplace.

Hybrid work arrangement. Good work life balance. However, office culture is sub-par and lack of career progression opportunities. If one lacks job experience, training can still be arranged.

Full of nice colleagues, stressful work

Many Chinese-speaking people work here, and many colleagues have been here for more than 5 -10 years. Getting management approval for your work is stressful, other than that, the rest are fine.


Nice office


Could work long hours sometimes

Fun work place

Did it as a part time surveyor for one of the running campaign. The experience was good and my supervisor was really helpful and encouraging through the process. Eventually I was able to expand the job to cold calling which was a breakthrough for me.

High workload but nice people

Workload is high, but management do recognise high performers. High turnover, and restructuring occurs quite frequently. Colleagues are helpful most of the time.

As an FA you're on your own time. Not much to comment on. Just that you get what you work for and depends on the agency that you join as well. Work hard and reap the rewards.

Productive Engaging and Fun workplace.

The position I was assign to is the assistant for the director of the agency. Work there was tough and challenging in the beginning but it was so much fun as the company believes highly in giving back to the community as well as celebrating each other's religious holidays. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The toughest part of the job is trying to explain the customer's policy to them or the reasons for claim rejection. Having patience is a must in this line of work.

Great opportunity was given

Independence at work is promoted and exposure to different areas of the job is given. The was great emotional support and one-on-one training was also offered throughout the entire time in the company.

Productive and fun work place

This organization allows me to learn more about the financial sector a little better and it allows room for learning. It exposes me to different job-scopes of the customer service line in a financial sector setting.


Friendly colleagues

Fun Environment, low learning curve.

As it was an internship with AAG, it was a fun learning environment with my other peers, there were many things we learned that could be used in our daily lives. However, the learning curve was not very effective as they do not teach in 'syllables' i.e. they jumped around certain topics and kept sharing about their successes in life to motivate us, however it wasn't very motivating.


Many friends to learn with and from. Overseas trips


Sharing of their success in life almost everyday.

I love working there

I enjoyed the people I worked with. It was a friendly atmosphere and I actually enjoyed going into work each morning. Throughout my tenure there, I got a chance to work with different teams on different business initiatives. I learned a lot from management & supervisors on different management styles.

Working at Great Eastern have taught me great discipline. As considered to be your on boss, own target, we work according to the time we choose. I usually start early so as to be prepared for my appointments. I would travel around just so it is convenient for my clients to meet me. Sometimes it stretches till late night and can be very tiring.


Own time


Alot of travelling, prospecting

Experience as a temp worker.

My review will not be the most accurate one as i was only a temp(orary) worker. I worked there briefly after A levels. Work was manageable as a temp worker and it was all generally a pleasant experience.

Conducive working environment despite mundane job scope

Our job scope mainly is to provide administrative support (extracting info from company's software system etc) daily. Despite the job being mundane, the people there are very friendly, welcoming and helpful! They invited us for some company lunch even though we only started working 2-3 days. Our manager was always there for us should we have any questions or face any problems with the system. Advise was always given to us on and off to further understand how the company's software system work. Experienced the importance of teamwork. As the company's audit database is huge, we divided the workload among ourselves and also cross checked each others' work, this was probably the toughest/most boring part of the job. The job might be boring but the learning process and the teamwork involved was rather enjoyable! Going through that huge database and pushing each other forward!

It's fun to work

It's a good exposure to work at that kind of environment. Working at sales job is not an easy job. You must have strong determination if not you will fail
