    Pros

    Free food. Near MRT station.

    Cons

    U can get dismissed from the job for no reason at all. Maybe I should say for a scenario they made up? In my case, an alleged escalation of an issue I never even heard of!

    Pros

    Nothing,Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, Confirm guarantee plus chop Nothing Even if have, it’s the boot polishing skill that you will confirm be picking up.

    Cons

    1. bunch of bootlickers 2. A bunch of gang bullies 3. A male boss with no guts and sack people without valid reason 4. A lady boss with no foresight, only listen to rumours and blind by sweet talk - She will sack anybody who gets into the way of her trusted man, despite them either useless or stupid 5. Stingy, no bonus, no incremental, reasoning due to poor business performance, Yet can drive a big car Dear folks out there, interview and join this company with risk. There are so call many better worst companies out there that might not be as worst as this Gan Teck Kar.

    Pros

    Free lunch and nice office with no moral people.

    Cons

    Family business with boss only hears the gossip of extended family members and those bootlicking staffs that showing off that do nothing surrounding him. Don't need to work efficiently, just learn how to please the boss and bootlicking with gossip. Bad culture with no future. High turnover with no jobscope. Staffs work with no increment, no bonus and no direction. When time of salary adjustment or review performance, the company will make all the reason and hold back. No money no future no direction. Stay away from this company. Those still there, sorry to say that they are no choice either or part of bootlicking gang that making the toxic place.

    Pros

    Nice office and good products

    Cons

    Family business so is run by politics. When employee have advise to give, dun listen. A lot of problems come and is just their own doing, never listen to advices of good staff. Will want to point fingers. Decision of sacking employee by her feeling when insecure or feel like she insulted n Also not knowledgeable so no basis. Then whisper to ear of owner with lies to favour and sack as she n he please.

    The food loving company

    Pros

    GTK is an established company that has been in business for almost 30 years. They have established relationships and networks with many of Singapore's F&B companies. They carry a vast array of products and well loved brands. The company is always open to ideas and brining in new products to accommodate its customers requests. There is no commission for sales personnel in GTK which results in the sales team working together rather then competing with each other. It is a great place for a sales person to hone their skills and grow their network in the FMCG, F&B industry of Singapore. The benefits and compensation package is not too bad for a family owned business with reference to the current market rate. They have great dental and health care packages. Lunch is provided FOC daily and there is a gym / recreational area.

    Cons

    It is however a family owned business and room for career advancement within the company maybe limited. There is no commission structure, thus competition is limited or non existent between colleagues. And sales personnel are required to go above and beyond without incentive. With regards to employment, the non-compete clause is relatively long. Basic annual leave package could be improved.

    Pros

    Nothing much really, just free cafeteria food. A gym. Office conditions are okay and comfortable. Location a bit out of the way

    Cons

    Unethical when doing employee reviews. Does employee reviews WITHOUT the employee. Many Unjust termination. Management refused to listen to workers on the ground, and just do whatever they want as long as it is done.

    NOT WORTH THE TIME AND EFFORTS, WORST COMPANY EVER WORKED

    Pros

    Free food and beverages Gym facilities and badminton court Nice new office with scenery

    Cons

    - Location - "Visually impaired" management - Bootlicking culture wins - Backstabbers and bootlickers are trusted - No proper SOPs. processes are in place as people are asked to go without proper handover - Promotes people who are not the best role for the position and yet do not trust them at managing the department or staff, some are even incompetent, yet they are promoted just because the bosses like them with their bootlicking skills - Boss who is a scaredy-cat, sacks staff from the hearsay of people he wants to hear yet he is scared of confrontation with the individuals, always pushes someone else to settle on his behalf - He assesses staff's performance from hearsay of people he trusts and not what he sees - You can be privileged staff enjoying all the power and trust this moment, and at the bottom rock the next, just because privileged people who are green-eyed talked bad about you to the boss. - Unfair dismissal is common and happened almost every week. - Your work effort will not be appreciated with what you have done to make the company better, but how you make the boss feels good about himself. - No matter how hard or long you have worked for the company, the boss will not care once he feels that it is time for you to go, without proper performance assessment and reason. - No appreciation to the staff as no increment for the past years as the boss said the company is not making money, yet he spent a lot on unnecessary stuff that helps to boost his pride and keep his face - Exploitation is what they are best at!
