      Pros

      Excellent work-life balance, encouraging team and helpful colleagues.

      Cons

      Because they negotiate their remuneration on an annual basis (including 13th month and bonuses), this may not be advantageous if you are using your base salary to negotiate your next job. Organisation is large and it's not always clear who does what.

      Good pay (for fresh grad) but trash working culture

      Pros

      Pay package for a fresh grad is very good.

      Cons

      Seriously is there even any point to have mid level management? Everything is done at the engineer level with the managers only there to waste everybody's time with useless meetings and their pointless inputs. Despite being the person to do everything with the mid management offering no (or useless advices), we are the only ones that gets scolded in meetings for mistakes (can we even call them mistakes? The old people at the top have changing requirements everyday, everything is dependant on their mood and "flavour" of the day. Most changes are due to the English phrasing that they prefer anyway). They also do not take any responsibility, go to them with any problems and they will just offer generic advices and leave it to the level above them. What's even better is when you approach that even higher level, they will just ask you what are you doing and reprimand you for not going through internally with your direct bosses first (who was the person who asked you to find the higher level).
