I think it's best to judge on your own when you two go for interview... sometimes the expectation varies from one another. Staff A may be able to accept the work culture of the company but staff B may not. So the best bet is always be your own judge.

Let's just say that it is a problematic account to the core. Teams have led this project before you and have since left, and I believe with or without you, your team won't be the last either. They have been trying to solve some ermmm... integrity problems since 2007. Referring to both parties by the way. I'll have to side with the client though, regardless of how difficult CIMB can be. I mean, customers pay to get service, am I right?

Yep ziranath, ahem ahem is currently in big trouble. No doubt they have secured a major contract recently, but frankly, that only serves to slow down their demise. Even with the major contract on hand, it's still a zero sum game. When the orders come in, you will still have to produce the headcount to manage the manpower requirements. How will the company be able to handle 10 service calls with only 4 technicians?

Imagine that.

Lucky for you tongue.gif

Since you have such a good view and in depth knowledge of CIMB and Dataprep, are you an ex-staff?
Otherwise how would you know?

There are many scenarios in a project. Were you a manager in Dataprep before?

You have your rights to your own views, but since you were not the Project Manager or any manager in the company (i assume), then i think you are not at the liberty to comment.

As to the rest, why the hiring continues is probably due to manpower requirements and additional engagements.

Trust what you see within your own eyes.
Its your career.
Its only losers and non-performers that complain.

How do i know so much about dataprep, PM me, and I'll let you know.

i just would like, if you have another offer, please let this offer go

They are still using old system to manage the team and also the management team is very poor of skills to manage the people who make profit for the company

if you are be appointing as a customer, field or technician, please think twice

the field position is not covered by zone, if you have call in Shah alam in the morning, you also can have another call in wangsa maju after that

Well, Dataprep actually not a bad company la. maybe there's a bad and good.

For workload, it normal if you donno how to manage your time and work. because in dataprep you have to meet tight deadline.

For environment, oh. i love it. they have sport club. company trip. sport club like usual. got badminton everyweek. snooker every 2 weeks. got movie day everymonth.

I resign from this company before. coz i got offer for government. it turned up few problem that i have to resign from government. and i worked for american big company. i missed dataprep. so, i resigned from american company. and work again with dataprep. really enjoy lor. haha.

i work as an executive of one of the department. maybe it is sucks to be the field engineer. admit that u can get a call at shah alam in morning and another call at wangsa maju in the afternoon. its what they call field whereby you may need to cover ur area. for me, anywhere is the same. just depends on urself. how you want to build ur skills inside smile.gif

Hi all, just wanna share some info. Recently I've been working at solsis/dataprep. Join last january and I quit last tuesday..hehe..

Actually, solsis is ok but the workload depend on what project u involve. Like me, I was in RapidKL project and all I can tell you that since last 2 month, I've been working in like a dog day and night. There are time that I have work day and standby at site for a night and continue back to work the next day. For the record, there's one time I've been working non stop at sites for 19 hour..hehe sweat.gif
Past 2 weeks when the project starts to implement, i've been working like hell but when I get my payslip.. my overtime claims is higher than my salary..hehe
So, my advise. For young and junior in IT I suggest you work there for an experience plus high income (4-5k a month). In contrast,you'll have no life..hehe as for me I prefer more relax job and have time with family and friends. Good luck smile.gif

agreed -> "Its only losers and non-performers that complain. "

so far, i love this company, eventhough work like hell. i once stay in office more like 28 hours for some projects.

but, somehow you have to believe if you stay patient and do your work honestly, good will return.

for young people like me, to gain experience, this is the place where you have to do multitasking.

whoever got interview from this company, just give it a try. if you accept, try for a week or for as long as you can stand. if you dont like, cabut la.

and its true, sometime, my OT claims, higher than my salary. while other company sometimes cut the OT hour. smile smile.

Don't waste ur precious time working for this dumb company.

If u do, u're working ur ass out to feed the top management.

For the past 10++ years this company has been declaring profit frm 1st to 3rd quarter of the year and then tadaa..4th quarter total loss! Hahaha..meaning no bonus to so called dedicated worker slaves..kwang kwang kwang

Year in year out..same old shit..

To those who reply with good feedbacks bout tis dumb company n challenged u to PM them are actually one of the fat management people who's dangling the carrot to employ slave to serve their fat arse..kakakaka

Okay here is my sharing. 20 years ago - yes - not trolling - I was an IT employee of Dataprep / Solsis. I can't believe that they are still around. Maybe that speaks for itself.

Also it was an ok experience (of course that time would be different from today) - as a yuppy - stepping to getting experience to go up the ladder of salary.

Anyway, 20 years ago - and they are still around today with the same name - thanks for the memories TS

(dont know, maybe my experience with this company made me the millionaire I am today)

Go for it as see in 15, 20 years from now and open a thread at LYN v9 and tell us.

hushymushy was right. this company is in a bad shape now. and i worked for 4 years n 6 month. i also cabut my last day was 3-4 days ago and i'm still at my desk now for what ?!!!! haihh... hahahahaha.

since they have so many new staff and management, their new problem is my old problem. repeat the same thing over and over again. the people is haiyaaa. so hard to handle. but the company is a wonderful place to learn something new and experience.

as my dad oso told me once in 2011, u work at a losing company. find other job la... so here it is...

i'm looking for another job. lalalala.

goodbye dataprep !

solsis is not a bad company la..i've worked previously with worse international company.. when i joined solsis as a helpdesk analyst, some of my colleague say this company is so bad.. but when i experienced it myself, it's not like what they told me..it depend on ur attitude.if u kind of person with attitude issue,any where u go also u will face the same problem..there still got stress and pressure but to me it's normal..in terms of benefits is so so la..not really attractive but still ok.. solsis really good place for me to gain knowledge and experience..i've attended a lot of courses during my service with solsis.. next week i will start my new position with international bank in IT department.. i'm not an IT background.i graduated in mechanical engineering but 3 years in solsis and now i'm moving to IT department as an IT officer.. my advise for those who curious about this company and the environment,why not just experience it yourself..don't just listen from others.. smile.gif
