    fast paced and great for learning

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosexposure given by previous boss was quite significant even as a temp employee. always checks to see if I'm coping fine and treats me like a full-time staff. even as a temp, my opinions are valued. facilities are quite good as well.

    Constoo much micromanagement sometimes. even simple projects or assignments require approval from high up and would thus slow down the approval process when getting things done. remuneration is only so so and in line with the market rate.

    Advice to Senior Managementtrust junior management in their respective scopes and minimise micromanagement

    They basically do not care about your life if you are not some high post employee

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsYou can learn a lot of things especially if you involve in site work.
    Able to see a lot of things if you are a fresh graduate looking to "learn from the worst"
    If you are lucky enough to be based in HQ - Hyflux Innovation Centre that will be great! Nice gym, good environment and nice pantry

    Cons- You may learn a lot but be prepared to get your hands dirty as you will need to multitask doing all the hands on job just because of a bad management system. (Like doing what the workers do as an engineer)
    - Policies are very unfair, involve in projects without allowance and there goes all your extra expenses in transportation and food
    - There is no balance of work and family in this company. Be prepared to not see your love ones for at least 6 months as you need to work 18 hours a day at least, 7 days a week during the "crucial" time of a project which a project is always in crucial moment because of bad management. (with no extra allowance)
    - Take care of yourself if you are just a worker. Because if you are at site and you get sick or even deadly sick, they will not bother unless you are some HOD or the Director.
    - Very high turn over due to dissatisfaction of employees.
    - Basic necessity will be not available at site for a day and you might need to borrow toilet walking a kilometer away from another company's office. Due to bad management.

    Advice to Senior Management- Try not to save that small amount of allowance. If you want people to work OT happily and feel worth while of sacrificing his family time please at least show your appreciation by giving that little amount of allowance every month!
    - When you said you will improve site condition, please do so! Having some chemical work beside the canteen area is not doing any good.
    - Treat your employee better if you want to improve your management. That is the first step.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Challenging but rewarding

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    Pros- Support is given for career and personal development
    - relatively young workforce, easy to work with.

    Cons- Time taken for reimbursement of travel expenses can be shorter
    - Top-down management style, sometimes can add to delays in projects.
    - Too much micro-management also add delays to getting approvals etc.

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

    A very asian company.

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsEmployee welfare is improving. Good working environment if you are located in the new HQ building, Hyflux Innovation Centre, with a well equipped gym, entertainment room with KTV and pool table.

    ConsVery top down approach management style. High staff turnover rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to micromanage too much. See beyond the dollar and cents and focus more on quality.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company but have to try hard not to get involved in politics.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFast paced company. Once you start working here everywhere else seems slow.

    ConsPolitics. There are no cooperation among all the departments. Senior management aims to kill one another and sometimes one or two employees are sacrificed.

    Company will follow Singapore's government policies if it helps to save money but when it comes to rewarding employees the company will save every single cent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency. Open communication. Improve benefits.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
