    AOs work too hard

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGenerally good benefits, reasonable profit-sharing bonus.

    ConsDepending on department, work-life balance might just be a myth. Some work too hard, while there are many others who report to work everyday just to pass time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage your people on the ground to find out where the true problems lie.
    Too much sugar-coated reporting done by middle-management.

    Poor leadership, particularly at the middle management level. Individualistic working culture, lack of teamwork.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAerospace MRO is an interesting industry. Good place to learn about this industry. Company has many divisions (Line, Heavy, Workshops) and joint venture companies. Benefits are reasonable.

    ConsManagement treat junior staff (administrative officers and general staff) without respect. Middle management (Managers / Senior Management) can't lead their staff.

    Bureaucratic. Addressee in email need to be arranged by seniority of appointment. EVP followed by SVP followed by VP etc.

    Individualistic working culture despite teamwork being a core value of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the middle management as they interact directly with the working level. Weak leadership will result in poor staff retention and low productivity output as staff do not look forward to work.

    Improve culture from individualistic to collaborative.

    Administrative Officer (Former Employee)

    ConsSteep learning curve for non-technically trained personnel who may experience difficulty in understanding how the business model works.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConnect with general staff through the AOs.

    Not A Happy Camper

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExposure to the MRO side of aviation.

    ConsBig disadvantage being a foreign worker here especially if you're coming from a 2nd or 3rd world country because of discrimination. No formal trainings provided, you learn as you go along on a need to know basis. No promotions, incentives and travel privileges especially if you are a contract staff. Co-workers are are very deceitful and cannot be trusted. Salary for contract staff is below average and overtime pay is limited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your subordinates(especially the in-direct/contract staff), they are the assets of your company. Don't tell them they are all SIAEC just because you want the work done but when it comes to salary and benefits you hide behind the agencies who signed their contracts for you and tell them you are not an SIAEC staff. Because of this attitude, you lost and are still loosing hundreds of skilled and semi-skilled contract workers. You lost the support of big airlines contracts and now you are struggling to keep your own jobs afloat while still you have the audacity to give bonuses to yourselves and your permanent staffs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
