Related Company Review:
Pros: Colleagues are always a fun bunch. Most are in their mid 20s. Good place for fresh grad since you're doing everything yourself.
Cons: No company activities at all. Maybe just once or twice a year. No welfare/staff benefits other than capped $50 MC claim per month, filled pantry, $10 hongbao for Chinese New Year and 13th month bonus which you will only get 50% in December and the other 50% in the following April. Bosses are bias. Bosses tend to gossip about ex-employees during meetings all the time. Everyone is basically doing more than 2 job roles. Heard that HR is working for two companies, one is for TripZilla and another forex company which is located above ours. If you are going on a media trip, you are using your own annual leaves. No half day on eve of PH other than if you're Chinese for Chinese New Year and Malay for Hari Raya. Someone calculated the turnover rate for 2018 was 18 staffs out of 30. If you're from local uni or private uni, your salary package will differ. They don't seems to have a benchmark for salary here, tried asking few colleagues and ex-colleagues, everyone salary seemed different. I found someone who is a fresh grad who grad overseas having higher pay as someone who converted from an intern to a full timer .
