    I have been working at Keppel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Demanding bosses that has high expectations. Great learning environment if you love autonomy. Will learn to act autonomously but provided with high amt of challenge. Guidance and support from colleagues and bosses

    Tough environment to work in. Difficult to navigate within the bureaucracy - need to be patient. May not be the most wonderful location in Singapore to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Management is recognized to be accomplished and capable but too ingrained in condoning low performance. Needs to react faster to keep up with the changing business operating environment.
