    Pros

    Free beers on Friday, 20 days vacation

    Cons

    Seek is looking forward to maintain toxic people, it is impossible to fire someone at Seek, so you can work a lot but still toxic and bully people will be there, even if they don't deliver they will be there forever, there is no way to change this, the management just close their eyes and say we need to tolerate. The only way Seek give you is to quit or just be toxic

    I worked at SEEK full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    benefits become better after the acquisition of SEEK

    Cons

    too much office politics. Everyone is polishing the bosses shoes instead of telling the truth. Hired too many talkers instead of an executor. In this company as long as you can talk and from overseas you will be pay way higher than average but do only a little work. You can work from home or even don't do work at all as long as you report a little bit of things end of the month or when your boss ask you to report. Current staff are not being promoted and only focusing on hiring talkers from outside the industry. Keep on mentioning digitalisation and as long as you are digital savy whether is useful for your job or not you will also be given priority.

    Pros

    Flexible working hour and culture

    Cons

    Seekasia CTO lack leadership quality, too much mgmt talk, strong bias to dev team unable to deliver result, task was eventually outsourced to vendor with other tech division budget. a strong capable overall tech team is required, not just putting emphasis on dev team dictating technology from code perspective. network & infra have their own optimization and configuration which dev team need to abide to not configuring infra to entirely suit the code.

    I have been working at SEEK full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - The teams you get to work with, I feel like the most talented and passionate people are part of the SEEK team - The culture, everyone values the "special" that SEEK has to offer- it can't really be explained in words. - if you need something, ask for it- no one is afraid to help you - all the senior execs are happy to chat, no matter who you are or what team you are in, they are all approachable and willing to share

    Cons

    - Teams are growing fast, not enough meeting rooms and space in the building
