More Pros and Cons

  1. "Network Specialist"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Maxis full-time

    Pros

    Rapid changes and good work space environment

    Cons

    Poor empowerment to working level caused talents left

    Advice to Management

    Management need believers to make changes, not followers.

    I worked at Maxis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Above average benefits in terms of other Malaysian companies.
    -Decent mobile allowances (used to be better)
    -Medical for family & dependents are above average
    -Flexible work culture
    -Fast paced environment
    -Office environment is engaging

    Cons

    -Fast paced (not for the faint of heart)
    - Salary is not as competitive as it claims to be, no proper bench marking in terms of increment or salary justification. Junior staff are being paid tremendously more to current talents who handle 2/3 times more responsibilities.
    -Internal transfers are tougher than it is claimed to be. Managers prefer to hire from outside rather than provide internal talents with better opportunities.
    -Career progression is virtually non-existent. Bridging career progression from IC to Managers are non-existent (vice-versa).
    -Managers are also unclear on how to set expectations of talents on what needs to be done to progress to the next career level.

    Advice to Management

    -Relook the entire organisation structure, while a flat organisational structure may be good for business it is not necessarily the same for employees. After a while it feels like you are going round in circles trying to hoard other people's responsibilities with the slim chance of getting noticed and fingers crossed get promoted.

    -Managers need to be clear on what it takes to help talents grow; not just saddle them with more responsibilities with the false promise that you might be promoted in the distant future.
