    Pros

    You will have time to grow and enhance your skills. More importantly, not much pressure at work.

    Cons

    Very low salary at SGD 2k-3k for developers. Annual increment sucks (2-4%). Long working hours. High employee turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to value your employees and compensate them accordingly. Don't be stingy in giving increment especially to deserving employees. Else you'll loose eventually your valuable resources.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Phillip Securities

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, able to leave on time unless there are timelines to be met. Willing to hire fresh graduates and give them a chance to start out in this industry. Training opportunities are readily available. Able to acquire knowledge from several areas due to the Group’s involvement in various activities, such as dealing in securities, financial advisory etc.

    Cons

    High employee turnover means one has to cover a departed colleague's work until further notice or manpower is available. This in turns lower staff morale. Remuneration is very much below market rate. Not much room for career growth once you reach a certain level (may not apply to all employees). Poor employee benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase remuneration to match current market rate and retain top talent. Focus on one to two areas of business.

    Pros

    very good working hours. most departments can leave on time. medical and other benefits are pretty well taken care off.

    Cons

    company is privately own, directors are keeping all the money to themselves and keeping salaries low. it is a traditional company with traditional mindset running the business. Family-run business, so opportunities are kept for themselves. Bonus payouts are much lower than before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if want to hire talent or want talent to stay, advisable to pay them

    I have been working at Phillip Securities full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company generally provides sufficient autonomy. The pace of work and working hours allow for good work life balance. There is also a good working culture with little politics. There is also ample opportunity to learn on the job as management is not afraid to trust younger workers.

    Cons

    This company offers a below average monthly pay. the industry is not doing well. as such, they used to compensate with an ok annual package, but moving forward, things dont look so bright. other aspects are pretty neutral. there's lots of things to improve on but not much to complain about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i feel this company needs more competitive salaries. this would lead to better talent retention.
