Productive and fun workplace

I was very lucky to have a great boss who turns the stressful workplace to a fun, lively and a learning classroom. She creates a culture where we work together as a team, solves the problems together with the believe that there's no such thing as a 'stupid question'. People are free to ask, even the simplest questions.

No work life balance; work hard all the time

Work hard in more than 1 role and expect to work long hours. A lot of business processes and tedious manual collaboration between various teams.


Flexibility to work at home but will work long hours


Work more than 1 role and might need to work long hours

Working in Microsoft APAC

Working in Microsoft is challenging yet fun. Currently I manage 9 countries in APAC region, that includes Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam. While, I also do assist on setting up SEA NM region remotely from HQ. What do I do? I make sure all operation in all the countries are in order, and within compliance. Nonetheless, I also get involved in investment/budget allocation/spending, business reviews and any channel/retail related matters. Frequently travel over the APAC region to understand local cultures while assisting the local sub work more effectively. This also involves closing deals with vendors/suppliers either remotely or locally for marketing matters. Aside from that, from my past experience, I am very strong at public speaking. I still do occasionally give talk/seminar in Microsoft to New Hires to get them on-board. Coming from a technical background, and I got myself into sales line, thus working on marketing currently. I strongly believe, I am capable of coping any challenges that comes in future. Last but not least, I am looking forward for opportunities to grow my career, especially in a corporate line.

Productive and Fun place

I can select my working position, from home toilet to the office pantry or cafeteria. I used IT technology to ease my daily work routine. As saying goes " don't leave home without your VISA", better " a clutch bag " I am referring to my light weighted robust notebook. We hold each other hands until the task is completed and celebrated success by blasting wishes via email. We encouraged each other on a conference call to resolve task and snap up all the no taker role in a meeting discussion within minutes. We talked about anything under the sun except work when we really under the sun, walking towards a coffee break or group outing. We closed all the day issue from APAC within the working hours, which made the working environment no room for gossip. With so much positive energy surrounding me, how not to be productive and fun.

Youthful and Productive Working Environment

I joined Microsoft as a Channel Incentive Analyst back in 2010 handling the India Distributor. I need to ensure all the queries from the Distributors were answered correctly and performed calculation of their incentive. Subsequently i was promoted to a Senior Analyst and a Regional Operation Process Lead. I was handling the Enterprise Market for the Asia Pacific region and i lead a team of 9. I need to ensure all my queries was responded within the SLA and payments were on time and accurately. i took on the compliance lead role where i will initiate review with the compliance team on business processes. I need to ensure that the productivity of the team increase and the process still follow SOX compliance.

Sales focussed but very Ethical company.

A typical day at work starts with a personal review on the YTD performance and meeting up with customers/partners to showcase solutions. Building relationships and selling. There is abundant information and materials to build knowledge and skills on our internal portals. Lots of courses to help us sharpen sales skills and deal management strategies. Learnt a lot of new products of Microsoft, overview of an enterprise IT infrastructure, building trust with BDMs and C-level executives, managing internal and external agendas. There is a fair amount of teamwork as long as you are performing and meeting your targets. Co-workers are very friendly when they do have the time. Hardest part of the job is to manage internal agendas and also ensure that focus is not shifted away from customer. The most enjoyable part of being here is that you don't go home a single day without learning something new.

In charge of the Programs development under Supply Chain

I mange the MTVs (in Singapore and China) and the relative personnel, such as PM, BOMs groups, etc. to ensure the monthly shipment on schedule for the customers and prepared for the contingency plan. Furthermore I also focus on the cost saving so that MS can serve the customers well with the cost effectiveness.
