The company provides the flexibilities to staff to choose the working hours which could work for them without disturbing the productivity & the work activity which need to be completed.
Working from home is also a culture which allows employees to work from home at least a couple of days a week to ensure the productivity and the support provided for UK/US is not a burden to employees as the meeting hours may differ due to the time differences.
Pros
Work Live Balance, Staff benefits such as EPF and Medical at the higher end

Good Experience
Nice working environment with good looking office and able to work different people from other countries. Fast pace and a lot to learn within short period in the company.

Frequent change of management direction and office politics may not be a good environment for myself but if you can bear with it then its fine.

Work starts with morning meeting to discuss the progress of various jobs.
I learned to multitask and be independent in doing my job also be proactive and take the initiative if you want to learn,

The management help me through a lot of things regarding my training and getting settled in. The co-workers were friendly and were willing to provide a helping hand when needed

The hardest part of the job was having to get the job done independently with minimal assistance.

The most enjoyable part is learning of all the new things.
Pros
Having supportive co-workers, a balance work/life environment
Cons
No proper training modules
