    I have been working at Garena Online full-time

    Pros

    There's almost no good thing about this company to me

    Cons

    Very bad management. I can frankly say that management has promoted wrong guy to be the leader. The lead in engineering department has his hands-off on technical matters and only favours those from mainland china.
    You will be expected to work 24x7 and even when you are sick !!

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to grow forward as a great company, please take care of your employees like how you want them to take care of your business
