    limited development

    Mid-Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGood place to start a career. You get to be very hands-on in your field, thereby picking up skills and knowledge "swimming at the deep end".

    ConsHome grown management that was not looking out for best practices from the market, believing in its own tried and tested Keppel Way. Failed to retain its mid-managers over the years, leading to succession problems at senior levels.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRenew and rejuvenate the management team. Bring in new leaders that can take the company through the next 10-20 years.
