    "Only if you are looking for a job not a career"

    Pros

    - Office at a convenient location with amenities - It is a decent company if you only want a job. For the young ones who hold ambition and drive, it will be quite a waste of time unless you have the stars aligned.

    Cons

    - If you are looking to make progression in your career, you are better off taking your years to another place that values it or you can just do a 'stop-over' here just for name-sake and then move on. - The department I work in is extremely stacked up. You can be stuck in a position for years and not understand why you never move up, instead there seems to be more stacking up above you. On the average if you are a... performer, unless you are extremely lucky to have your stars aligned, the fastest it will take you is 3-4years to move from 1 job grade to another (note it is job grade, not position and this is also hugely dependent if you have a manager who speaks out for you and whether your level is flooded with new hires). If you are a lady and you decide to go for maternity leave, you start from zero when you return. Unfortunately, the mass 80% of us are not considered as performers. As the top performers leave, those who are left behind are just those who have accepted that this is a job not a career. - New hires are always of a lower caliber. No opportunities given to existing staff as management thinks existing staff have stagnated (not because there is a motivation issue to address) and they need new blood. Interestingly 'new blood' do not tend to want to stay long so the same cycle keeps happening. - There is no room for progression and management does not bother about development of their staff. There is no culture of mentoring and training is not targeted to what the staff needs. They will do blanket training just to tick off the box that training has been provided. If you choose not to attend, there is no budget for anything else you will want to do. Training budget is an unrealistic figure which HR will estimate based on historical trends. You will see this budget go nowhere because it will never be reflective of development needs. - This is a company with little direction (or perhaps there is but most of us at ground level will never know). Top management finds no reason to communication vision and direction, as they too believe people are hired to do a job and all that matters to the staff is only bonus.

    Advice to Management

    - Listen more to the ground and take time to consider development of staff (not through blanket training). There are staff who are motivated to contribute more to the organization, just that you probably do not even know some of them exist or know their names. - Consider if your middle managers are truly concerned to their staff at ground level or more concerned about gathering enough credit for their own promotion.

    Pros

    The office is good, the company feed you with money for the one who is concerned.

    Cons

    Management is authoritarian, arrogance, political, result oriented, shouting is a common attitude, keep changing his mind constantly as usual. Staff requires to work long hours, promotion only for singles or who less commitment to family and dedicate most of their time for work, pressure from top to down, unhealthy environment, you may develop selfish manner if you work too long with Mapletree, inefficient due... to your boss keeps changing his mind to keep the creative figures.
