Creating happiness in a not so happy place
Product development (Current Employee) – Singapore – March 19, 2019
This is a "prestigious" place to work given its been on the forbes list of companies people want to work for
It has its pros and cons like any other companies but right is not a good time to be here as the company is majorly cutting costs
And people are expected to take on more work when colleagues have been fired and even interns have been cut out of the budget
Despite being an American company, the way of working in this Asian office is not as forward and open to having dialogues.
Hierachy is prevalent and you are not encouraged to speak your mind.
Townhalls have been cut, for good reasons I guess, since the MD was not transparent in his speech anyway.
Management is biased toward finance and other dept such as marketing.
HR hires sometimes fails because they favour hiring external parties from other brands to join the company instead of promoting internally.
To which I have seen a couple of people fail terribly, which is a shame and truly a waste of time and resources.
Leadership is mostly comprised of British and Indians. Lack of racial diversity in a company catering to all races worldwide
Contract workers are about 50 percent
The company does not convert good performers who are in the creative dept to be permanent staff.
The best part of working here is that you have the opportunity to bring happiness to consumers.
Fruits available everyday, fitness programs, health care, clean office
Employment terms, poor management, lack of transparency, complicated processes, lack of racial diversity in leadership team
