    Current Employee - Manager 
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at ST Logistics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The variable bonus are okay 2.5 months average + 1 month AWS

    Cons

    Overall the basic salary is slightly lower than the market for local grads with decent degree.

    Advice to Management

    In general are okay but not thought leader and old school style of management. Need to embrace multiple perspective of different ideas and solutions and use data analytics to form a better decision, not just the usual last time is XXX hence now is XXX and reject the rest of the ideas

    Pros

    Lot of things to learn and basically deal with on your own.

    Cons

    Low pay, work almost daily even when on rest days via watsapp ,email, phone calls. Personal phone number will be used and given out to all customers so that they can contact you 24/7. Workload does not equate to pay and position . Some staffs hired are friends of upper management so they are being favored, paid more, given better titles and less work (some of these cases do not even know how to use excel, word...,PowerPoint,yet are given managerial positions due to nepotism).

    Please hire based on merit. Be fair to yourselves and the organisation so that it will earn money instead of losing money.

    Pros

    Good environment and good bonus. Festivals are celebrated quite grandly where everyone comes together.

    Cons

    The executives need to strike a fair balance between all different kinds of races and not just entertain their own race or people who are smart in carrying them.

    Pros

    Culture is pleasant once you get to know everyone. People willing to help when you start being gracious first. CEO has great vision, and is very sharp; not easy to "smoke". If you get air time with him, you can learn a lot. Everyone is on the ball because of his quick observations. Operations people have a positive "Never say die attitude" if you are in the right team which makes things fun and fulfilling and... family-like I observe that 50% senior management are good, caring, experienced, capable leaders, who are sharp in business and socially perceptive. I have seen worse in other orgs, so it really depends who you are working under or exposed to Company has good financial prudence and management. Pay is always on time and claims are processed quite fast. eHR system works and is very convenient for - claims - leave application - pay slip printing IT procures good laptops which are light weight and perform well; if you don't get a new one it's still quite decent.

    Cons

    Observations: How good it is depends on your boss you work under. Below are some of my observations and feedback gathered from the grapevine. Not all bosses are bad. There are good bosses where the below negative points are truly not an issue at all. High turnover largely due to disparity between interview agreements and actual job description. Something which HR doesn't get feedback on when people exit as no... one wants to say bad things. Good hardworking people get "rewarded" with more work - those unable to perform get bailed out - abundance of "side projects" to shine and expose to if you are young and very interested in learning - money rewards are lacking in the last few years to remunerate accordingly - Transfers occur more often out of "lack of fit" rather than because of merit as low performers get "bailed out" Promotions occur at stipulated time-indicated milestones - good performance does not ensure promo and salary increase - some do not get promoted despite actively taking on expanded job scopes into management and supervising, unless you have clocked the required "years" - no assured adjustment of salary upon attaining your masters or degree or diploma Sorely lacking in a credible and dependable large enterprise HR - orientation Programme has much to improve on - does not recognise (appreciate) working over time especially if staff are willing to go to extra mile for the sake of a deadline - training is mediocre, and you really have to ask your superior to try to get you budget to get into a course you're interested in. - very little is done to engage the executives and staff in organisation-wide policy creation - recruitment is not dynamic and energetic; a lot depends on 3rd party agencies - remunerations are not attractive to local uni graduates and retaining talent; high turnover results and there is severe knowledge leakage - the HR recruiters have limited knowledge of the ops and job scope to suitably hunt for good candidates Former military/home team servicemen and women get offered between 15% to 35% higher salary than those of same age, same academic, same years experience. These are highly favoured against regular plebeians, though not often do these candidates arrive with much ample management, industry or skills expertise. There has been a decline of such former military talent, although it is not rare Salary policy is generally 5-15% lower than market and often like to "commit" that bonus are high in lieu of Low basic Most departments are under-staffed and over worked. HQ will be moving to Tuas soon and it's far Personal opinion: one will know you are severely prized if you don't get promoted, your job scope increases, and there is generally venial things to criticise about your performance such as - attire (skirt must be below the knee, dye hair Colour, socks mandatory for loafers on casual Friday ) - duration of lunch - punctuality - messy table/work space - "are you really that busy" criticism You tend to be perceived as one of the higher end good workers when you - come 15 mins early before work - don't speak loudly; speak well and politely - dress well - don't go to toilet often - don't use Internet for personal things even during lunch - don't use your phone and/or messaging often + after the above, when you do your work well, you will surpass expectations and be given more work This place is conservative in its management and truly ok if you believe you aren't a "strawberry" or self entitled millennial

    Pros

    In general, management take good care of employee development, in both skill sets and career development. Employees are given opportunity to take on bigger responsibilities. Trainings and courses (internal and external) are arrange for all employees to upgrade and further improve on their skills. Management takes in feedback and make necessary improvement, for example, benefits.

    Cons

    For employees who drive and work at main office, parking is limited.
