    I worked at CPG Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Get a below average but steady income; get by without doing much. Medical insurance, $180 dental/ optical per annum Advance if you are favoured (not necessarily competent)

    Cons

    (Re. an architecture office) The different characters in the office are summarized as follows: Manipulative, favoured, useless, lazy, comfortable, and about to get out The lack of transparency is a result of the unsuccessful attempt to mask nepotism - the commoners are not rewarded for the good work they do, so they leave

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be a poor understanding of who is actually doing work, and if anyone were to contest this, then I would say it is clear nepotism. You are top heavy so get rid of the black sheep in the management if you want to keep the capable commoners

    Former Employee - Senior Architectural Associate in Singapore
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at CPG Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The two reasons to work here - 1) great projects 2) great people CPG has some of the best projects in Singapore and also over Asia. There is very little politics in the company.

    Cons

    The management is very traditional and not progressive especially in their attitude towards business which is the reason the company is not doing well today financially.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people. Pay them more, give them more benefits (so that they are happier) and invest in their training. This will improve productivity. Also act like an expert and professional, and do not bend over backwards for the client when it over works your staff, pushes them beyond their call of duty and encroaches beyond the scope of works of their contract with you.
