    I worked at Keppel (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are accommodating while I was working there as an intern. Most of them gave me guidance not only about the work but also my career in the future. What I like the most is the access to GE leadership development courses and other career building tools such as e-books, audio books, etc.

    Cons

    The company lacks the teamwork spirit in doing their job, many people are there just for work without caring for others. Engineers and senior managements also need to be engaged with the technicians more often.

    Demanding bosses that has high expectations.
    Great learning environment if you love autonomy.
    Will learn to act autonomously but provided with high amt of challenge.
    Guidance and support from colleagues and bosses

    Cons

    Tough environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Management is recognized to be accomplished and capable but too ingrained in condoning low performance. Needs to react faster to keep up with the changing business operating environment.
