Fast-paced, rewarding

Global meeting in the morning to get everyone up to speed about the latest development, weekly check-in with global training partners on the status of current and upcoming projects, online presentation to schools, focus time for personal development, lunch with colleagues, complete any outstanding work, work through the challenges and possible solutions, seek advice, unwind before stopping work. Management team seemed distant in Singapore compared to the US. Very little interaction between management and its staff /team members - they only work with their direct reportees (middle managers). Middle managers has a lot of autonomy over how they run their teams, this would be a challenge for the team if they have a poor or bad leader. The hardest part about the job is when you have an unnurturing boss and one who will keep putting you down in whatever you do. The most enjoyable part of the job is you know how meaningful your work is, and you derived the highest satisfaction from doing the work.

Pros

Meaningful work, high job satisfaction

Cons

Pressure to meet sales target, bad leadership (my direct boss)

Horrible hire and fire

Horrible hire and fire under this guy called baien. No transparency on reviews. No respect for employees and vendors. If a guy like that could get his way into a management role then it isn’t a company worth working for

Micromanagement at its best. Poor management

I worked from home during this job, and the call center managers monitored everything I did down to how many times I peed throughout the day. No training. You're suppose to come up with answers to complex questions on the fly by using their knowledge base. It really is an inhuman way of treating people. They listened in on every call and counted you down for every little word you spoke or didn't. They marginalize you as a human being, and treat you as if you are a soulless mechanism that needs to be corrected all the time. This only works when other people allow it to work. It's not Microsoft necessary that makes this position horrible, it's the cowardly people who enforce unrealistic goals and treat their fellow man like they don't matter -all for the sake of a dollar.

Great team; terrible managment

Worked in APAC marketing team with talented bunch of hardworking people, who were let down by poor management and politics. Company couldn't decide what it wanted from a marketing team, nor how to measure marketing performance, which lead to anxiety and high team attrition rate,

Monotonous Job

Learnt and love handling various callers. Day would revolved around returning calls to clients of past unresolved cases. Management was results driven but would stay back and enjoy a game of Call of Duty with the team.

Great place!

I liked the place. There was too much micro-managing going on during work though. When that happens, even the talented employees become less motivated to do their work.
