    I have been working at MCI Investment Holdings full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    CEI Fees (Claimable after completion of 1 year) New joiners attached to a buddy or Mentor Commission scheme not that bad A structure & career progression where you can get promoted and be able to lead a team Increment every 6 months (If you hit your target) Entitled to incentive trip ($300 - $3500) yearly, if you hit your target Entitled to Profit Sharing if you hit your target and other criteria Birthday Leaves & Festive Leaves If you are hitting your KPI or even higher, Seniors will not come and disturb you Work life balance if you know how to handle your time

    Cons

    Malaysian Fresh Graduates - Bonded 1 year with the company, failing to hit target or resign within 1 year, must pay 1 month salary A very realistic company - If you are able to hit your KPI, you are safe, if you are unable to hit for several months even with help, off you go. Seems like a big company with 100 staff but not very good management skills Manual Jobs - Counting of payroll for your temp staff, submitting of incentive slips using excels HR Team - HR does not stay long in this company, changed over and over again. Management Team likes to implement new rules as and when they like. Management Team gives us a very money minded feel, everything is about money Forfeiting of incentives when Client fails to pay up by 90 days of credit period. But eventually, when the Client pays on the 100th days, the sales and money will go into the company pocket. But even when the Client pays within 60 days, you will only be able to claim your incentive after the 3rd month (Good tactic of company holding on to your commission, so that when you resign, they will forfeit 2-3 months of your commission) REAL Bad handling of JSS - which results in MOM & IRAS complaints and Complaints from internal staff Profit Sharing every year will only be given 8-9 months after the FY ended Profit Sharing for FY 2019 not paid till date. Was told that it will be drag till next year Although there are promotions for your career progression, but think back, what is the difference between Senior Consultant and Consulting Manager (Both are still doing sales and both are able to lead a team) - No big significant difference and benefits
