    I worked at ST Aerospace full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stable job that allowed for a good work/life balance. We were allowed to come in early or stay late for some OT. They were also fair giving time off when needed. Two of the best bosses I have ever worked for were at this company; fair, patient, knowledgable, and could get the job done right. Very inspiring bosses to work for. Good pay too.

    Cons

    Not all of the management was very good. You took the good with the bad. The bad ones played favorites and treated you poorly if not on their good side.

  5.  

    A big player in the industry, but lacks innovation and true company culture outside Singapore.

    I worked at ST Aerospace full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some quite capable people. A big name in the industry, which can carry a lot of weight when dealing with customers. Provides an opportunity to work on big projects and interact with other big players in the aerospace industry. So it can be a good stepping stone for a newcomer.

    Cons

    Outside of Singapore, company lacks identity and drive for innovation. For the majority of employees is just another company to work for. Salaries are not in par (quite lower actually) with industry; I have even spoken to people from other companies that had interviewed for ST and they confirmed it as well. Need to invest on a more qualified labor force (there are some very qualified people here, but not in enough numbers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to implement really serious improvement programs that can be mirrored across all sister-companies. Need to invest more in professional development of its employees (including those outside Singapore). Sometimes it is better to pay a bit extra for a more qualified employee; do not let cheaper labor damage the company's reputation.

    I have been working at ST Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Great place as an entry level, or someone needing to refresh their skills

    Cons

    No wage scale, low end pay, last minute schedule change, and no loyalties among your supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a couple of extra bucks, attract good mechanics. Leaving aircraft in project managers hands will be your downfall. If you need to make more money on the aircraft, bid them higher and eliminate trainees if your worried about the hours.

    Pros

    We get to do PTF for fedex which means alot of hands on with the aircraft, much to be learnt.

    Cons

    Pace of work will leave you tired always

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have to find new ways to motivate current employees, or risk an ever-increasing employee turnover rate.
