    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Mapletree Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good company. Stable and fast growing. Highly structured and organised. Attractive compensation.

    Cons

    Need to have a more efficient and effective way to streamline workload so that staff can have better work life harmony. May tend to have long working hours.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if management could take in the feedback of employees and show that work is in progress. Employees’ perception of any real change still has lots of rooms for improvement.

    Pros

    Only have $500 worth of vouchers to use on top of your bonus but vouchers can only use at vivo which is very restricted.

    Cons

    Bad working environment especially with no good leadership's boss and once you have made minor mistake they will forever take you down no matter how hard you been working to be cautious.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Mapletree Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High bonus, Mapletree vouchers. Basically nothing much other than good compensation package. If you consider pretty office and nice pantry is a pro.... once in awhile give you Mapletree t-shirt and recently zoo passes under ballot.

    Cons

    Bad culture and many audits to check on individual staffs. Simply no trust in all the employees. Many SOP and implement many rules which are not part of SOP but still will get NC if audited. Company will put you down even you are willing to learn since once you did something wrong, it will get broadcasted and def affect yours bonus and promotion. You will join the company with high self confidence and I'm sure by... end of second year, you will end up with zero self confidence and depression.

    Cons

    Lots of backstabbing and politicking here with everyone trying to bootlick senior management for promotion/ gettin into bosses good books Plenty of overtime with pathetic meal allowance of 6 dollars max per claim (only entitled when u submit ur receipts so if u dont claim, u lose out) and tight timelines to follow through Leaving at 6pm is near impossible and if u do, ure a very special specie Some very... rude and undiplomatic staff especially senior level from the HR team who talks with lack of tact, not compassionate and extremely slow to deliver Too many SOPs to follow and management does not seem willing to change because you have to adapt to their working style and environment and not the other way round Things moves very slowly here which is extremely ridiculous especially in such big organisation, memos/forms/urgent approvals takes days and days to sign and may even come back with plenty of amendments and would already exceeded timeline, management got no sense of urgency Be prepared for a huge culture shock!! Very high turnover rate (staying power averages about 1year with some even shorter) and u will wonder why if u are that unlucky to be placed in certain BUs

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate and value add your staff especially those longer serving ones, do not be so money driven and take ur staff's loyalty for granted and that u actually forget most people also have a family to support and not here to be at your beck and call and like a slave to u!

    Pros

    New office with great views Convenient location with eating options within MBC. Shuttle bus to Vivocity during lunch Good bonuses plus Mapletree vouchers

    Cons

    Steep learning curve, lack of proper training Lots of unnecessary paper work Poor work life balance, frequent "2359" deadlines Lack of appreciation for staff

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better. Have company wide events to foster identity and belonging. It is pathetic that the managers have to fork out of their own pockets for CNY lunches, Xmas dinners.

    Pros

    Bonus was good, but not good enough to balance all the cons. Bonus include Vivocity shopping vouchers.

    Cons

    80's management style, with a lot of shouting and finger pointing. More than half of the time is spent chasing and updating weekly and monthly reports to upper management, so end up very little actual work is accomplished. Poor learning experience compared with other real estate companies. There is no cooperation across departments, a lot of politics and sabotage. Many people resign and not enough manpower, a... lot of information and knowledge lost in the process. Too many changes month in and out, low job security, maybe staff should be put on contract basis, that way they may last longer in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Shouting at others does not mean you are right, especially profanities, it only shows how low class you are. Give good and clear instructions, we are not mind readers. Do better to retain good people. Need to treat people and their profession (incl. consultants, vendors, suppliers, contractors etc) with respect, its really bad when recruiters and headhunters choose not to work with you and do not speak well of... your organisation to job seekers.
