    Pros

    Huge organization. Great experience. Nice co-workers. A lot of things to learn. The company has a very modern system for employees to follow. It encourages people to grow.

    Cons

    The company is just too huge. Limited space to get promotion. Marketing department is not the core functional division in the company. So it might not consider entry-level candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Great company with so many sources for employees, so there are not too much space to improve. The only thing I find is the poor-designed website.

    Pros

    People are diligent and smart.

    Cons

    Doing some basic staffs and can't learn more. Intern just deal with some data and doing some document work.

    Advice to Management

    Add more staffs in a department so staffs will not complain about overloading workload. More management stick to principles.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Very political, no team spirit between departments and loads of finger pointing. Progression dependent on your relationship with your manger, forget about meritocracy. Overbearing, bulling and difficult behaviour are highly valued personality traits.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to pay attention to the type of leaders that are appointed to manage the organisation, especially the senior ones.
