Not bad

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at ST Electronics (Singapore) full-time for more than a year

ProsSo far considered one of the best companies I've been in. The rules are quite flexible, politics are also at a higher management level, thus operational levels are still quite okay.

ConsSalary considered quite low, I think only good if you have like a local university cert.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Hit or Miss

Software Specialist (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at ST Electronics (Singapore) full-time for more than 3 years

ProsA little above average bonus if you are a perm staff. Never runs out of government projects. Able to go leave office on time.

ConsDepending on who your boss turns out to be, you might regret getting into the company. Very high turnover of staff. No real career progression unless you know how to kiss the department head's patootie. So much politicking going on.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome department heads are useless... goes on trips abroad with their female admin staff. Spend a lot of money but their output doesn't match. Be wary.

Your HR/Finance people have character issues - In the wrong, never say sorry, never admit. Rather die than lose face.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
