    Office colleagues are friendly and helpful and they are scheduled training courses for self-development.

    Pros

    Colleagues, especially those who have joined the company for only a few months, are nice. No other positive factors worth mentioning.

    Cons

    The company has no welfare for staff at all. Totally no work-life balance as employees were forced to work 24/7 in order to meet unreasonable timelines set by management. Controls were almost non-existent, most probably due to shortcuts undertaken as directed by incompetent superiors. Immediate superior made empty promises to make changes but nothing was done even after many months. Very top heavy organizational structure. Senior management positions were mostly held by people who were not adequately qualified. For instance, the head of internal audit was not a qualified accountant and reported to the CFO.

    Advice to Management

    Look into improving staff welfare and staffing correct people for the right jobs. Provide opportunities for better work-life balance. Happy employees means better chances of talent retention and improved productivity.

    Pros

    Generally helpful colleagues. Nothing else I can think of.

    Cons

    Expect to Work 7 x 24 without OT for exempt staffs. Promotion is based on favoritism. Salary increment is usually less than Singapore inflation rate. Too Many restructuring since the 1st retrenchment in 2011. Dunno when you will become redundant. CEO always walks and check around the office and your monitor to ensure you are working.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded to talk more to working level staffs.


  6. Having OT and OT and OT almost every day

    Pros

    When you get thrown into the deep end, you learn to swim really fast. So the learning opportunities are abundant.

    Cons

    When you get thrown into the deep end, you will surely swallow several mouthful of water. If you cannot stomach it, then it is a big problem.

    More open channels of communications to address staffs in all levels on company progress and updates. More feedbacks session from people on the ground to understand staff morale.
