    Pros

    Excellent learning experience. Very efficient HR team. Nice working environment and good cooperate activities. Work and life balance is not bad, compared to many local companies.

    Cons

    Sometimes team work is not easy between different sectors. The upper management has to provide more support to unite the whole team.

    Advice to Management

    It's a good company and over the years the company has accumulated valuable experience. It is important to let the experienced staff be promoted and take charge of the junior ones, which will contribute to the company's long term growth.

    I have been working at Keppel Seghers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Provide good and relevant trainings for employees
    Basic medical benefits are taken care of
    Very good safety mindset. Work sites are very safe.
    No HR malpractices
    Have good infrastructure and office environment
    Always pay salary on time

    Cons

    Political, a lot of red tape
    Doesn't consider employee's welfare highly
    Very clear "play it safe, protect my rice bowl" culture. Employees are not encouraged to speak up against the bosses
    Very slow increment and promotion
    Does not have a good system to recognize and groom potential employees at the entry level
    Does not value their lower level employees highly but treat the managers and above very well
    Follow the Keppel's "low basic, high bonus" mentality but since the company is not doing well, bonus has been poor and employees are generally underpaid
    Highly hierarchical

    Advice to Management

    Please take better care of employees at the plants
    Please level the benefits between old employees (before the merging) and new employees (after the merging)
