In ST Electronics, you are trained to multi task in a very fast pace working environment. Addressing all upcoming activities based on project schedule to prevent over- run of project delivery. I had learned to adapt to address issues occur in project site. The workplace culture are typical statutory board style. The hardest part of the job are personnel competency & the most enjoyable part are sufficient resources.
Working as a front desk associate was a decent job title. My role was to attend to walk in clients for training allowance claim. Check for eligibility before processing. Book appointment for job seekers. Sending emails and general Admin duties.
ST on the outside appear nice however on the inside looks different. There are difference between permanent and contract staff (outsource) in terms of remuneration package. Contract staff do not get much benefit on the remuneration. The working culture in Transportation Business Unit does not seem to be good. Most of the colleague or senior tend to push the work to someone else to do and they are not supportive but there are handful who are good colleague. Management do not understand nor appreciate the employee work. if there any hip cup the blame will be push to the employee. Came across there are employee who worked for 10 over years still as contract staff and increment is only 10 over dollars. There are people who are talented in TBU but the management do not wish to retain them, this clearly shows they do not appreciate talents. They trained employee well enough so they can leave. There are restructure in year 2017 and massive of the contract staff were asked to leave due to less project on hand. it is a place to work for a short term but not a long term careers and progression is slow. May consider other Business Unit or organisation except Transportation Business Unit.
They will follow MOM employment regulation and nothing more or nothing less

Project (Current Employee) – Ang Mo Kio – January 3, 2019
- Stable salary, bonus and employee share scheme. - Gain valuable experience and exposure working in a large-scale project - No work-life balance, progression and promotion are slow. The workload is not well distributed and requires much overtime
a company that look good on the outside but career prospects are very low. company is dealing with military related jobs & projects that have a lot of restrictions with regards to the personnel that is being employed.
good employee benefits in terms of days off & anually bonuses
A typical day at work consisted assisting my supervisor and manager in administrative work. I learned overall how to manage internal and external client expectations. The management was driven and customer service focused, everyone worked in teams towards a common goal. Hardest part of the job was onsite visits after working hours that could stretch until late in the evening. Most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work with nice colleagues and receiving positive feedback from clients and bosses.
Customer are very demanding and always particular on what is to be delivered by us. Management has been supportive at times but not providing a permanent solution for future development work. Daily task can be overwhelming based on priority of work on hand.
Management does not try to actually persuade talents from leaving the organization, resulting in many average/bad performers staying put as ST rarely gives out the pink slip unless a major incident occurs. They really do need to understand and find out who are the ones that are actually performing to keep things running and not just based on what they see on the surface from their ivory tower. Many managers actually DO NOT know what they are actually doing/required to do and are just taking their execs/engineers for granted. Furthermore, please revamp the compensation structure. It's ridiculous considering ST is a listed organization but the best compensation package for retaining a true talent is just a measly $150 increment, considering that talent had actually brought in a new platform for development and have developed fully from scratch and produced one that has not been actually seen in the world stage.
Job Work/Life Balance: Was great, great exposure and good environment to work in. Salary Benefits: Was pretty good Job Security/Advancement: Safe! There are good experiences in the Security teams. Management: I did not work much together with the management teams because I only transfer calls. Job Culture: Did not know much of the colleagues there.
