Learnt and love handling various callers. Day would revolved around returning calls to clients of past unresolved cases. Management was results driven but would stay back and enjoy a game of Call of Duty with the team.

Great place!
Sales executive (Singapore) (Former Employee) –  SingaporeNovember 11, 2018
I liked the place. There was too much micro-managing going on during work though. When that happens, even the talented employees become less motivated to do their work.
