It's a very good company to work for. They have very good benefits but if taken reduces your salary alot. You don't have to work for a long period before getting a promotion and hard work is noticed
Pros
Benefits, good environment, friendly management
Cons
Long hours, half of the staff transport fees gets deducted from your salary, no staff meals

Sometimes workload can become much, in the case of absencenteism.

Its a good working environment. Depending on the department you're working for, its pretty flexible to structure your working hours. Office hours is fro 9 till 4, as long as task and duties are completed in a efficient and effective way. The office is very convenient with so many amenities available such as food shop, daily lunch, easy coffee access, access to working kitchen, hairdresser, printing services, discounted clothing store.
