    I have been working at Keppel Shipyard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible when it comes to taking leave as long as you have someone covering you, ample off in lieus you can chalk up if you work Saturdays and public holidays

    Cons

    Expected to work 7 days a week if you are in operations, no such thing as work life balance despite higher management advocating striking a balance, this is only for them to practise, not for us, the average executives. Pay is average compared to equivalent positions in other companies Bonus is no longer high to boost your annual package

    I have been working at Keppel Shipyard full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. Steep learning curve. I personally feel you can learn the most in the least amount of time here as a fresh graduate. 2. Good balance between site work and office work (I do not like desk bound jobs) 3. Bonuses 4. Keppel brand name 5. Company transport

    Cons

    1. Work life balance 2. OT pay a little too low for the workload. But atleast it is better than some companies with no OT pay but expect you to work OT.
