    I have been working at Keppel FELS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good working environment. Great colleagues to work with, especially when you need help for urgent jobs. Great place to learn technical skills. Learn to lead and manage the team.

    Cons

    Poor support from upper management. Constant change in planning leads to last minute jobs. Physically demanding, need to come back on weekends for supervision. Long working hours. Poor rapport between upper management and officers on ground, often leads to miscommunication.

    Advice to Management

    Always listen to the lower management and officers on ground for advice. Spend some time talking to them to know more about the current status of job. Willing to open up and have meaningful conversation with them. Always take care of them.
