    I worked at Cyril Sweett

    Pros

    Good working environment in Singapore. If you're good the company will promote you, and the management is approachable and friendly.

    Cons

    Skills you acquire are relatively easy to find in the market, the company is making a very small margin on top of what they are earning from you so remuneration is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to young recruits as they are the future of the company. Set up a proper training program instead of waiting for the recruit to learn everything on their own.

    I have been working at Cyril Sweett

    Pros

    The rank and file of employees are pleasant people with good technical skills. They are meticulous about the work they do and try to do a good job on each task.

    Cons

    The working environment is dreadful. There is a glass ceiling that seems about a kilometre thick. The Board seems to have no ambition to be anything but an average QS company. There seems little appetite for innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some ambition about the future and follow through. Get some new blood on the Board and listen to those people. Do some soul searching about why there are so few women in senior positions and how that affects the company.

    I have been working at Cyril Sweett

    Pros

    The people are really good to work with at employee level.
    Some high profile construction projects
    Employs a number of Industry leaders from whom much knowledge can be obtained

    Cons

    The managment are very poor, from senior to board
    Dispite recording a £3mil annual profit employees face further cuts in benefits
    Vast gap in knowledge between recently qualified and Senior employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carry out a review of employees prior to approving salary and promotion review. This will avoid the inappropriate salary reviews of employees due to favourtism of the sector managment.

    I have been working at Cyril Sweett

    Pros

    Would prefer not to comment as it is not a very nice place to work at the moment.
    The people you work with are generally nice and can be fun to work with. There is a good unofficial social scene

    Cons

    Poor management, bad communication. No social activities anymore. Low salaries compared to the market (even in a credit crunch)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your good staff more and your bad less!

    I have been working at Cyril Sweett

    Pros

    The people you work with day to day, if you can handle it, you will get a lot of responsiblities

    Cons

    Poor senior management, bad communication to lower levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    review the management of resources, make sure that line managers give a balanced review of employees (inlcuding bad reviews). There seems to be a habit of protecting under achieving employees as they may reflect badly on the line manager. This is not fair to the actually hard working employees
