This is a great place for career growth and learning, as they invest heavily into training. In here you will generally find 3 types of people: business consultants, strategy consultants, and IT professionals. As an ex-project manager, my typical day revolved heavily around engaging people - clients, team members, and stakeholders through discussions, meetings, and presentations. The rest of the time I would be performing typical tasks such as planning, coordination, scheduling, and management through various tools. The management is well structured and the culture is open; resulting in a positive environment even though work can be challenging at times. As a very customer-oriented organization, customer satisfaction is looked upon heavily. Escalations (internal or external) are taken very seriously. Promotions can come very slowly if you're not recognized; vice versa individuals who know how to stand out can ascend quicker than expected. Probably due to this and their heavy customer-centricity, the company is full of outspoken and conversant individuals. If you like people and dealing with people, this is probably the right place for you. The pay is on average higher than most other employers and they offer excellent benefits. There is a ton of company activities all-year-round, with special interest groups for employees to network and connect. This is one of my favorite perks, as I love meeting and connecting with new people. Verdict: Would definitely consider returning to this organization one day.

they are not being transparent to you about the ongoing project and your kpi. if you work contract with them, please avoid it since they will give you so many uncertainty in decision making and will jeopardize your rice bowl. In the end, they simply last minute ending your contract while they promised something different to you before you join them. so don't always believe whatever they say about your employment. surprisingly, they not only uncertain about your contract but they also have so many uncertainty in their own process while doing work as a team. while doing work, they will give decision on the process with no permanent official notification and simply change the process they made few days ago and call the process as invalid today. easy to say, so many twists only in their process at work. the reporting manager of the project not even talking or mingle with you but they can simply give their bias response by not even knowing you. I'm not sure what about the other projects but the culture here, you have to beware with their uncertain decision making. they can simply change what they decided yesterday.

Portfolio & Delivery Management Associate Manager (Former Employee) - Kuala Lumpur
It's a fast past and volatile environment. Must be adaptable as requirement ever changing due to client request. Extended working hours may be applied. Collaborative team and good skillful resources. Good remuneration package if hired as permanent staff. Competitive when comes to climbing the ladder but opportunity is there.Don't expect work-life balance! Be prepared to be highly committed and flexible to work around the clock.A lot of training available online to upscale your skills/knowledge. Staff activities (formal/informal) organized to promote bonding among employees.
Pros
Flexible work hour.
Cons
Breaks-don't expect according to schedule.
