The best place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at Keppel Offshore & Marine full-time for more than a year

Prosno doubt working in shipyard you have to bare the weatheras it hot
humid, dusty and dirty, but if you out of the box you will see as it a very challenging and like a family when work because you not working for not 100s but 1000s and you get a chance to meet many races from other country and you get to know their culture and from there you will learn many things which are not taught in school or books or in you degree, so people try work there then you know what i am try to say.

Consmostly if you are not careful or vigilant then you can cause of accident or injuried someone, main reason before working you must attend the safety couse how to prevent accident and how to protect property and assets.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo comments their are doing the best.

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

No work life balance

I have been working at Keppel Offshore & Marine as an intern for less than a year

ProsKeppel Offshore and Marine offers great perks with superb renumeration. More suited to those who thrive in the construction sector.

ConsExpected to work almost everyday. Bad work life balance. The enivornment in the shipyard isnt very good and hence, this job is not for everyone.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not happened as expected, resign and find experience in another place

Electrician (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at Keppel Offshore & Marine as a contractor for more than a year

Proscan find experience / working there is like taking endurance test

ConsWork Life Balance bad / Work Place bias treatment (as there are Indians, Bengalis, Chinese, Burmese, etc. working) / Supervisors, Foreman, Chargehand will give easy jobs to his favored people / Try to control the employees with overtime payment

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should hire the suitable people from the beginning (by declaring what skills they need). (e.g. not hiring Business graduate for Engineering-related Supervisor position) // hiring one with no bias attitude to race // otherwise he will place his favored people to fixed places when the company need them in other places // should allocate resources correctly

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