    Pros

    Good work environment. Good coworkers. Great benefits. Ideal work location in the Energy Corridor. The company host activities to cultivate good relationships with employees throughout the year.

    Cons

    Senior management is distant and seems unapproachable at times. Support functions within the company are not given proper attention.

    Advice to Management

    Do not fill positions based upon tenure alone. Qualifications must be considered or else it causes your qualified candidates to look elsewhere for employment.

    Pros

    Really flexible schedule, management is really layed back... probably mostly due to the lack of projects availible within the industry.

    Cons

    lakc of coordination and planning, modec tends to rush into things head strong with a bunch of gray-haired yes men who can't follow through on their promises then expects their people to make magic happen.

    Advice to Management

    coordinate and confirm deliverables with sub-contractors before commiting to anything, the end client is depending on MODEC to deliver sub contractors ar your responsibility.

    I worked at MODEC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) Job security is there. Do not seem to retrench people even if u do not perform. 2) Good learning ground. They give people chance to learn on the job slowly. You can be hired without knowing the job.

    Cons

    1) Do not believe in paying people well. 2) Sometime people are recuited and promoted based on who they know rather than what they know (reward not base on merits). 3) Behaviour of some manager need to improve. Need to treat individual with respect. 4) Prepare to overwork if you are on site.

    Advice to Management

    Need to cultivate an environment where every individual are treated with respect. Promote people based on merits.

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

    Pros

    Majority of the entire workers are drawn from the local country in which they operate.

    Cons

    There is always job threatening words by the management and also lack of communication between the management and employees. Expatriates do not respect the norms of the local area.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest the company institute a way to check especially human behavior and institute a better way of communication between management and employees.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities to learn and to acquire skills. Flexibility to choose own work/ projects. Gives great opportunities for development.

    Cons

    Too much work without required resources. Politics, Japanese vs. Indian vs. Western managers. Clicks of people try to get rid, sometimes in very malicious way, of the ones that dont go along with them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop building your empires and get your act together.
