    Pros

    - Friendly colleague largely because of management mercy we have better bonding.

    Cons

    - HR is fiendishly practise to eating into your OT when assigning you overseas during New Year Eve. - Very High Turnover - Middle management allocates you because seriously understaff and try to take advantage of employee - Pay is below market rate - Take audit job but client is unethical, which is just waiting for bomb to explode. Middle management keeping from Senior management.

    Treat staff as human.

    I worked at Foo Kon Tan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    High exposure as you are thrown into various kind of difficulties to fend on your own.

    Cons

    Management only care about maximising their profits, thus they will overwork you. Does not matter if you are on legitimate MC or leave, they will still get you to perform the work. Extremely understaffed and under paid, as above, hiring more people means higher overheads. Working overtime of more than 15 hours a day is a norm. Maybe for 100 hours of Over-time, you get to claim 1 hour of Overtime Off Hour, that's if you are lucky. I have seen countless of people who were not able to tolerate the nonsense of management anymore, resulting in breaking the bond period and suffering financial losses.

    Advice to Management
