      Pros

      - Very Process-Based and Analytical company. - Decent salary annual package which pretty much depends on yearly bonus. - Responsive to problems faced.

      Cons

      - Very bad culture. - Poor leadership with "?" direction. Keep changing directions. - Too dependent on Bonus package. - Company benefits is average. - Too much emails and works. - Process based. Need "Black & white" ie emails to push through things. - No work life balance. Expect you to work hard and be on standby 24/7. - A lot of emails and follow up with tight timeline to meet. If fail to meet, will receive email again. - Never or seldom praise. Pinpoint into problems and errors. Demoralising. - Appraisal system is not much of what you have achieved but whether bosses like you. To talk more and be a "yes man".

      It's an okay place.

      Sep. 6, 2021 - Business Systems Analyst in Sarasota, FL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Almost no politics, Work life balance if you can make the deadlines

      Cons

      Management does not touch code, and does not offer technical guidance beyond the high level; yet expects deadlines to be met. Salary is significantly lower than median market rate, and senior management will try to get you to stay by badmouthing/talking down other companies.

      Pros

      Was able to learn alot of technology. Good colleagues willing to help when they are free. Exposure to different aspects of IT was there.

      Cons

      Alot of work round the clock . Needed certain level of skill to complete given task. Had to plan well and good technical skills. Depend on work loads, work life balance may be compromised.

      Not the worst company, but look for better ones if you can

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - job stability. Hardly retrench staff, even poor performers. - strong worker's union that will fight for your benefit (for port workers only). - company is moving in the right direction, by leading in various national projects and initiatives

      Cons

      - Used to have competitive pay package and benefits (a decade ago), but not anymore. Other companies have caught up. - Minimum work life balance. Be expected to work overtime. - People who are more capable works harder, but not rewarded fairly - Some bosses wants a bigger share of the pie as business/customer needs expands, expect more work to be done but no additional staff support - spend more time trying to showcase/report what you are doing/find fault in other departments rather than really solving problems together

      Almost perfect company to work in.

      May 21, 2021 - Crane Operator in Singapore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great pay. Great benefits. Easy to apply leave. Work life balance not that bad. Easy to see roster as some company don't provide the roster. Gotta do roster yourself. Nice colleagues. Most are like minded about the company. Work here less than a year already know how great the company is.

      Cons

      Difficult to get leave approval. Wait 1 month also unsure will get approve or not due to no quota. However, the leaves is our right. But the company rejects them most of the time. Wanna take urgent leave also rejected. If take MC more works. Will 1000000000.00000.00% get marked for life if leave rejected then take mc. Gotta gantry here and there like dog. From one end to another end. Planner dunno how to plan. Crane machine although still usable but a lot of faulty. When informing and explaining about an incident that is happening at the time, control room answered with an annoyed tone. Difficult to eat when got too many jobs. Don't even have time to eat. When too hungry gotta eat fast while working. One hand work one hand hold the take away food. Welp, the jobs are more important I guess. Cause we all too obsessed with chasing the incentives. Unsure about career progression cause I see a lot still stuck at the same position. Only selected few tight with management got upgrades.
