      Pros

      You get Japanese snacks!

      Cons

      Long working hours (Saturdays are compensated to 1 hour every Mon-Thurs) so basically you end up working more. Favouritism. Colleagues who push their work to you. No corporate discount if you are M1 subscriber. No company DND or activities. No communication at site/HQ.

      I have been working at Penta-Ocean Construction

      Pros

      Challenging. Not much technical work required. Work involved naturally gears you up for the management track

      Cons

      Being aggressive seems to be the way things get done here. The construction industry is still stuck in its old days, where people and culture can be rough at times. Working on a tight schedule, and not being in control of your deliverables, can be very stressful

      Advice to Management

      Change the approach towards getting things done. Value collaboration between departments instead of allowing factions to form. After all, this is all part of çoordination. Adopt a non-aggressive stance towards the subcontractors.
