    Preferential treatment for non-asians, resources are not utilised efficiently and internal deadlines are unreasonable

    Pros

    The work they do, Singapore is the global HQ

    Cons

    Need to be seen at your desk in the office (no trust in employees), long hours due to uneven distribution of workload within and between departments, unreasonable internal deadlines for projects (last minute demands for various reports), management's investment strategy is not profitable, need to be contactable during vacation periods, slackers get it easy (the better you do your job, the more work you get even if it's the slacker's job to do it)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are clearly issues when good staff do not stay long. Stop over-paying and wasting money on recruiting management staff who then get fired/asked to leave with a more than generous package. Stop pampering the non-asian management staff with their whims and fancies.

    I have been working at International SOS

    Pros

    salary is average in the job market but not very competetive, exposure to working in various fields of work e.g aviation, oil and gas,mining and security etc.
    Working with well organised and structured PNPs and SOPP.
    Advantage of adding working for a multinational company to your resume.

    Cons

    Poor Human resource structure, employee Career develpment is very poor; usually employ people for specific jobs and does provide sponsorships for advanced studies. This is not a company to work for more than 4 years.
    The company is centered on the job than wellbeign of the workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are expanding and you better take good care of your workers in this competetive business era. there is more room for improvement in the human resource structure and organisation
