Good place to work, once you are there you don't want to leave

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at Uhde

ProsVery diversified exposure to learn about all aspects of executing projects; good for gaining personal expertise. Adequate fair remuneration for responsibiliy assigned. Staff liked to stay very long with the company: average 10+ years. Pro-business local management.

ConsCompany was relatively small and could not take on projects > USD 50mil due to lack of personnel resources and head quarter backing. Modern computerization was hampered due to lack of approval of funds to upgrade

Advice to Senior ManagementExplore more regional work and more work-sharing between group companies. Encourage staff to go out by offering more and better incentives. Improve on-the-job training with more training courses.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
