    Pros

    Multi-cultural environment, traveling, flexible working

    Cons

    Sometimes too much bureaucracy at work.
    Each programme has different rules for promotions and salary increase.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a company standard for the performance reviews and promotions.
    Doesn't make sense having an exclusive recruitment agency and having no power on them to even negotiate small things. Such a lucky agency!

    Pros

    Great place for work/life balance. Good perks, not much stress/pressure compared to a commercial business.

    Cons

    Wrong place to go if you're ambitious. No career growth path, no movement in senior management means growth opportunities are hard to come by and when they do, favouritism wins over meritocracy.
