    Pros

    It is the remaining few companies that offers Job Stability and in recent years the management has opened up more opportunities for its staff for Growth.

    Some of the internal processes are still very old school (E.g: Manual data entry).

    Need to groom the Next Generation for Succession and re-look at the remuneration structure of the Lower Rank Staff.

    Pros

    Management can be very accommodating to meeting the needs of staff in intangible arrangements There is very little politics at the lower and mid-management levels Colleagues are generally very understanding and cooperative

    Cons

    Innovation and the push for it can be very slow The culture can be quite limiting for high achievers, especially for those with bold ideas

    Advice to Management

    Consider an in-house career advisor

    Pros

    Get to know first hand what type of new products are available in a megamart. Not much office politics and gossiping.

    Cons

    Job is monotonous and routine. There is not much of job satisfaction. Besides, there is not much of job advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Create some interesting posts in the job ladder. Create a pre school centre, gym, and bar for employees to relax and chill.

    Pros

    Friendly people - you get to work with middle-aged people who are generally more amiable. Trainings provided - Trainings are provided even for part-time staff. Positive working environment working schedule can be quite flexible for part-time staff (need discussion with supervisors) Get to meet alot of people within branch

    Cons

    Very busy during branch peak hours. Rather strict internal audits and inspections, failing which would receive warnings. short-handed at times and staff have to take up more than one role. Different branches have different styles of management.

    Advice to Management

    Set achieveable and more realistic targets for retail assistants to achieve. Although on-the-job training is provided, I do feel it is somewhat not adequate, perhaps the management should observe when part-time staff receive their trainings, you would be able to observe some areas that need improvement.

    Pros

    team work, and company benefits. bonus are not too bad either. it is one of the biggest local company in singapore

    Cons

    not much difference between one who is performing vs another who is not performing well. when it is time for rewards etc, both get it

    Advice to Management

    pay more attention to the junior staff at the front who are fighting the war but yet may not be given much opportunity as compared to the higher ranked ones.

    Pros

    You get to meet interesting (albeit frustrated) people who like to preserve status quo. Also, they tend to put the staff in fairly good hotels for overseas trips. No expenses are spared if you are on overseas business.

    Cons

    Change is not something that is encouraged. They will do alot of research to prove this and cling onto the old ways of doing things. Also, expansion and growing a third wing is just a corporate presentation catch phrase with little or no committment. Also, quite a fair bit of internal strife and tension between the various departments.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and look at your market share. You've lost your leading retailer and top supermarket chain status. Cash out now and sell to the competitor.
