Engaging culture
HR Senior Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Malaysia4 July 2018
Fast-paced global business services company. Young and vibrant culture. A company that encourages creative and enterprise mindset of all employees and to put employees' development and engagement as one of the priority.

Company's management team were always supportive of employees' well-being and individual development and goals. May not have a perfect work-life balance due to financial closing periods during month end.

As a HR professional in this company, one of the challenging period was to keep the engagement of the employees at high (or at least moderately high). However, this is also the most enjoyable part of the job to see employees' engagement and well-being increase.

I gained many new skills here, met some many different people and left with many friends.
I only left this position due to a relocation to NSW in Australia. Where my partner is studying his PhD.

great place to work, gym provided
Product Quality Specialist (Former Employee) –  North Ryde, NSW10 March 2015
A great place to work well balance and flexibility in working time. This is a pharmaceutical company with lots of people came from different culture and race but the morale is high. Workers from the operators to top managers are so friendly and respect with each other.

I love my job that is why I lasted for over 20 years but my latest role was made redundant due to shift change and organisation re-design within the quality department.
Pros
food is subsidised + yearly corporate bonuses
Cons
Multi skilling

Highly structured professional organisation with strong ethical and development oriented culture
Hospital Specialist Representative, Neuroscience (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, VIC10 November 2014
An excellent place to work with great support mechanisms and flexible approaches encouraging work-life balance.
Rewards were generous with competitive salaries and allowances, additional leave available on a performance basis.
Good technology provision with latest iOS devices and online tools.
Management culture was generally good with a collaborative approach to development and goal achievement. Most difficult aspects of the role are overcoming access barriers to the target customer group and addressing sales threats (like pricing issues, generic competition or strong competitor activity, or other market forces).
Pros
Flexibility, Salary, Incentive and Car Allowance
Cons
After hours work, country travel, external market forces.
