    Great learning opportunity with lots of support from colleagues

    Accounts Payable Intern (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsThe company's finance department has an excellent work culture where every employee is made to fee valued. Colleagues are always willing to help. Young staff also frequently organized birthday celebrations. Enjoyable working atmosphere!

    ConsDue to large size of company, there could be many invoices to process in the Accounts Payable department. However with the new invoice scanning system the amount of workload for staff could be reduced significantly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere could be improved communication between the warehouse and accounts payable department so that suppliers' concerns about payments could be more adequately addressed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hard working

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsInteresting work. Lots of room for growth. Travel opportunities and global reach of organization. Interview the company when they interview you. Find out what your expected scope of work is and typical daily activities.

    ConsInternal politics is interesting. No Overtime compensation in Singapore. Cultures are vast, important to know what is happening. HR are not the most pro-active. Salary increases are mediocre. You must leave and return to get a substantial raise. Lower level employees ideas and actions not typically rewarded.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
