    I have been working at Keppel FELS as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing much. Unless you can count the huge amounts of free time as you are left with practically nothing to do while spending your time as an intern.

    Cons

    Have seen some examples of outrageous behavior.

    1. It's not actually the intern's fault that they have nothing to do. If anything, they shouldn't get reprimanded and embarrassed for not having work when it is the mentor's job and responsibility to look after interns.

    2. Seen some cases of favoritism where some people are reprimanded for going to lunch slightly earlier while some people leave for lunch half an hour early. This just makes the atmosphere more tense and not productive at all.

    3. Also, if you are an intern at keppel fels, be prepared to not actually do any relevant work. You are mostly just delegated to being a paper girl/boy. There is not much to actually learn except it's name and reputation so don't waste your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For one, maybe having a proper intern schedule drawn up and explaining to us clearly what we are going to do as opposed to just dumping an intern in the middle of an office and telling them nothing would be more beneficial for both parties.

    Was highly disappointed in the keppel experience. Was expecting to have an enriching and educational education but so far have learned nothing except office politics and who to avoid, which frankly is nothing beneficial.

    Direct supervisors should at least check in on their interns once a week as opposed to maybe occasionally checking in every one or two months.

    All in all, keppel was a highly disappointing experience even with it's high acclaim. Definitely will not work there ever if this was a sample of how my life is going to be in future. Will strongly not reccommend for anyone going into the maritime business. They do not put in much effort.
