    Pros

    Great benefits, a good amount of parties and company functions

    Cons

    Many employees are completely worthless, managers are very new and lack the necessary manager qualities, people are not held accountable, cliques are made within the company. I have never seen a company so accepting of loosing income due to incompetent workers.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the weak links and stop allowing them to lose money. This company has the potential to hire qualified individuals at high pay, that will work hard and be committed rather than play games on their computer all day while loosing money.

    Pros

    Good environment. For many stress-free. Annual leave can be taken any time.

    Cons

    No career advancement. Min pay hikes. Many managers clearly unfit for their jobs. All top positions in Singapore with expats from Norway. Staff turnover has picked up in recent months. Cost cutting and nit-picking has commenced.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure promotions and good pay hikes. Open up more opportunities for locals. Managers must have a selection so that appropriate people chosen as leaders. No politics please.

    Pros

    The company cares more for its employees than most. It is often the little extras which make the job more rewarding and Kongsberg makes that extra effort regularly.

    Cons

    Some of the working practices are old fashioned and could do with updating. Recruitment could also be improved with staff shortages common.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support all your employees.
