- A lot of OTs for selected projects - Recognition based on people you know - Growth based on who you know - Those good at stucking up, skiving and pretend on front of others can do well
- Controlled over time for selected projects - Bonus deducted depends on Sick Leave and performance (usually Sick Leave. Management has no way to measure your performance) - No work life balance - Work your socks off but very little way to get recognized - Lousy management, no proper care of staff3

Friendly culture and colleagues Management tries to nurture the junior staff Steady income from aircraft maintenance and repair which alleviates pressure on R&D based projects.
Management aiming too high and unrealistic ideals about current level of technology. E.g asking degree holders to do things that even teams of PhDs or Google have trouble with, e.g 100% image identification of features. Mismatch of skill sets (e.g people with aero mech majors relegated to writing documents/specifications). Too many proof of concept projects. Big and bureaucratic. So much red tape procuring things. Fixated on aerospace sector projects, (e.g. due to it being the ST Engineering group's aerospace arm), and hence unable to pivot fast.

Strong leaders who operates well in command structure and solid execution of strategy in alignment to top.
Tend to micro manage which models after Snr Management and they tend to be weak when it comes to empowerment and engagement

Good colleagues, satisfying rewards, some career advancement but slow and subject to opportunities. Politics in company not as bad as others
Oppression by middle management. Many feedbacks being filtered by middle management from higher management from corporate

Most staffs are warm and friendly, work environment is clean and nice. Overall, it is a pretty satisfactory place to work at.
Bureaucracy coming mostly from senior management hinders the company from progressing and improving rapidly compared to many firms in Singapore

Decent pay and employee benefits
Poor leadership at nearly all senior levels. Virtually no communication between senior management and shop personnel. No clear strategic vision. Micro-management by site leader and corporate office. Employees are treated as 'units of production' rather than as stakeholders in the company.2

Friendly peers. Recent business ventures provide career development opportunities for motivated employees. Good entry package especially for engineers. Sponsorship is also available for employees whose personal development is aligned to the company direction.
Some senior management need convincing to invest in longer term initiatives especially if the immediate returns is not favorable. This does not detract from the business direction but can create some delay.
