    Good place to start for young workers

    I have been working at ST Electronics (Singapore) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is large and has many big projects. General culture is friendly and geared towards building the employees as a family. Young employees will learn a lot as they are thrown straight into fast-paced, in-depth work, allowing them to pick up skills much faster than their counterparts going through slow, theoretical training.

    Older workers will find stability here. The company seldom fires but seldom promotes as they struggle to maintain status quo.

    Cons

    The other side of the coin is that employees will be required to pick up many responsibilities they would be uncomfortable with, and have to pick up their skills independently without much help in the form of training. Also, they would need to do overtime and be able to handle stress.

    The other side of stability is that young workers will find many old staff not pulling their weight but still being kept around. Frustration many build.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management might need to re-think certain practices and company policies that worked in the past. New waves of graduates brought up in a different culture may not assimilate as well into the current system. Easy access to internet salary comparison tools such as Glassdoor means HR can no longer easily deceive employees into thinking the company's compensation are competitive.

    Company also needs to find the balance between trying to keep a rice bowl for fellow colleagues who are not pulling their weight and keeping up the level of excellence of the company. It seems excellent employees are constantly leaving due to seeing dead weights earning more or equal to them but not putting in the hours.

    I worked at ST Electronics (Singapore) full-time

    Pros

    office politics beyond your reach if you are not above a certain grade. everyone just work, work and work. not much bonding to talk about since it isn't a top department priority where i came from. not getting complaint phone calls or emails from client rest on top of management's mind. just do your job and don't bother because no one bothers about anything outside their job. quite silo-istic.

    Cons

    what leadership? standard training and benefits package. nothing more, nothing less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't let the men in green run the show until they are proven, else they do more damage than good.
