A comfortable place, but that also means it's not very exciting

I have been working at NTUC Fairprice full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Management can be very accommodating to meeting the needs of staff in intangible arrangements
There is very little politics at the lower and mid-management levels
Colleagues are generally very understanding and cooperative

Cons

Innovation and the push for it can be very slow
The culture can be quite limiting for high achievers, especially for those with bold ideas

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider an in-house career advisor

    Pros

    Friendly people - you get to work with middle-aged people who are generally more amiable.
    Trainings provided - Trainings are provided even for part-time staff.
    Positive working environment
    working schedule can be quite flexible for part-time staff (need discussion with supervisors)
    Get to meet alot of people within branch

    Cons

    Very busy during branch peak hours.
    Rather strict internal audits and inspections, failing which would receive warnings.
    short-handed at times and staff have to take up more than one role.
    Different branches have different styles of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set achieveable and more realistic targets for retail assistants to achieve.
    Although on-the-job training is provided, I do feel it is somewhat not adequate, perhaps the management should observe when part-time staff receive their trainings, you would be able to observe some areas that need improvement.
