    Pros

    Project managers at this company are great. Unfortunately Emas just laid off some of them.

    Cons

    Emas just laid off in May 2015. Career opportunities and progression at Emas is slow. HR states that a typical engineer 1 to engineer 2 progression is two years, but all engineer ones have been with the company for at least three years. Starting salaries for graduate engineers at Emas are not competitive. Emas offers more money to engineers from other companies than engineers that progress with Emas with the same level of experience. Emas needs to improve on it's work/life balance during tough times of projects. Senior management and the companies culture and values are guided by Singapore.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to keep your good talent. Hire a new HR department that doesn't specialize in lying and a senior management that has people skills.

    Pros

    handful of managers with good direction and has nice, enthusiastic employees.

    Cons

    Too much gossiping and cliques from HR through projects so it lacks some integrity. The big problem is that Emas lacks leadership among majority of managers - unwilling to make decisions and too feeble to settle on the company's direction so multiple arguments happen daily. Lacking good processes but enjoy putting on a show of 'vision' with town hall meetings and happy hours.

    Advice to Management

    Replace upper management - get leaders that can get on one page and create good processes. Be willing to make improvements by being honest about lessons learned. Stop trying to out-rank the other
