      Pros

      - Insurance policy and retirement scheme well known in civil servant market. Ask any civilian out there, quite sure no one can list any COTS items that ST does except for their retirement plan. This product is also consistent throughout entire of ST Engineering. The retirement plans sometimes offer more than 100% extra of the last drawn salary of some civil servants. - We offer additional jobs to some civil service appointment holders so that they do not get affected by inflation. These are important people to lead our country. Take a look at our board of directors and you can see that it contains our defence parliament secretary, MPs, CDF. - Company is quite united from top to bottom. During recession, our CEO took a big pay cut to tide the company pass recession. After recession, everyone from top to bottom took only a 1% increment in exchange for a 30% (for 5.7% growth) increment for our CEO. No complaints heard from anyone below. This is how much we care for our higher management. - We pay market rate for our CEO and Presidents, VP. As for engineers not being paid a market rate, they need to understand that this is a insurance company. If you are not involved in sales, you can be expected to be paid admin rate. - SMRT, ComfortDelgro are coming near to our competitive insurance package, but we are still ahead of them in the race pack.

      Cons

      - Not really a con. Company says that going for courses is considered 'urgent' request. This means that you are recommended to stay irrelevant and staying status quo is the best course of action to tide through covid period. Training courses doesnt add any value to your current job, and it only increases chances of job hopping and covid infection risks. The only course your company will recommend you is the defence masters course. This course will allow them to keep the image of being relevant in the defence industry, while also ensuring that engineers and managers will be flooded with irrelevant skillsets to prevent job hopping. - Most retired civil servants are forced to lead double lives as IT project managers. Alot of them struggle to understand software terminologies and software development cycles. Most of them struggle with their double lives and sometimes the lack of armor vehicles and aircrafts in a software house does make them look out of place. Sometimes, additional project engineers need to be hired to do the job of these IT project managers, which is a grave insult to the capabilities of these managers. It is equivalent to telling them that they can lead a battalion in war, but needs a clerk to front the war for them. ST needs to gives ample opportunities for them to learn on the job.

      Pros

      Able to work at moderate pace during low key period. Some bosses are generally quite okay. Lots of tech to learn if you want.

      Cons

      1) Outsourced stuff have no visibility. 2) Benefits can be taken away. 3) annual increment is max at $1xx 4) management are mostly from the army. Some may lack effective management skill Join only if - you intend to learn more than you are paid. Else if you intend to slack there, you can consider. But do note that in 20 years time, your pay might be the same as a fresh grad.
