Certis Cisco Experience

The experience was generally good. A typical workday would mean 12 hours of your day, but with a lot of breaks, pre-pandemic was more enjoyful beacuse we get to perform/sing in different venues in Jewel Changi Airport. Another advantage is that you will getbto learn airport protocols and SOPs.

Pros

Commensurate salary

Cons

Long hours

Very toxic and biased company

Very meh and toxic company. It’s only good to work there if you are Inspector onwards.And all the challenges there it’s only worth if the basic is high like from $3200 onwards.

It's a good place for people to start their first job in Singapore

- low basic salary, but with all ot and allowance add on , you can at least earn SGD 2000 - for certain shift you can earn up to SGD2700 - job is easy, but you have to do shift- as there is a lot of people working there, so quite a lot of politic issue-

Pros

free gifts, some time free taxi trip if you work shift, beatiful working environment (airport)

Cons

politics

Honest Living

Typically the hours are long, you need to be attentive for more than 12 (Excluding the travelling time) hours, even though you are on your break time you will still somehow be disrupted. Manpower is low at most sectors thus you need to OT frequently. You are not forced to but definitely all these leads to your appraisal. You must pass your yearly IPPT and Classification shoot.Occasionally implement nonsense rules and oral test which you have to do before you start or end work. You won't have sufficient rest and if you are on night shift good luck to you.Oh yes the timesheet will always have issues and you will take time to retrieve your pay as they deduct your pay because of the error they make in your timesheet.... Ridiculous

Pros

Occassional Free Passes to POI, Hotels, sometimes freebies which we don't really need.

Cons

Long hours, No team spirit, messy and unhygienic work environment.

Poor Work Culture

Join only if you enjoy a poor work culture! - No proper orientation, throw you in and self guide yourself- Incorrect salary payment, late payments, poor assistance from payroll team!- Egoistic team culture, and people will not help you. - A simple task will take a long time, approvals, work forms etc. Join only unless you have no choice.. will not recommend you to join.

Pros

Nothing much

Cons

Too many business units, people are not that helpful

Not easy / relax job / work environment

Must be prepared to work weird hours rotational shifts, timings never fixed, always different.As such, short-payment of salary is very very frequent, because system just unable to capture all different work timings / attendance automatically.Clients' in-charge may have all sorts of unrealistic rules & expectations for you.Locals be prepared that work environment on-site is heavily dominated by foreigners' (majority malaysians) work culture.

Pros

Full time stable job if you are strong enough to withstand the long weird work hours & roster

Cons

Long hours, little off days, stringent rules, foreigners majority work culture & environment.

Productive and learn new things

My experience with cisco was so great that i mwt a alot of people and also deployed to different sites performing different types of duty. It has made me understand more about security jobs. And as a Compliance Officer,i must really understand their jobscope before penalising them if there are any officers who does not perform their job well. It is part of my duty to also guide them and monitor them on their performance.

Pros

Riding own bike

Cons

Long hours

Work independently

Security industries whether it is big or sme's, about the same in term of work environment and manpower, The only different is the micro and macro management . How well the person in charge controlling manpower , elaborate and balancing the tasking need as per contract. Bear in mind that honesty in rapport and communication within team mates can be fake. My advise be your self and try to be honest as possible. Loyalty can be your great enemy if not handle properly. Main point is circle of trust created, can determine the benchmark of how long you can remain in such company.

Pros

Depend on tasking

Cons

Always shortage of manpower

同工同酬,做多少算多少

薪資所得合理,工作要求沒有太高,該給的休假都會有,每個不同的單位會有不同的文化需要適應。還有不容易升職。

One of the most stable job in Singapore

Over the past 30 years, we've faced numerous economic depressions and epidemics situations. However, company has always been gritty and has never abandoned any loyal employees. Therefore, I can be a part of the company and move forward together, feel extremely honored and thankful.

Pros

Stable job

Cons

Not allow to perform longer hours duty for earning more income

No job satisfaction and no job progression

If OFFICER UNDER CONTRACT NO JOB SECURITY. No welfare for staff and also if u do adhoc job you will be deployed at various location which is not fix and always change. As an AUXILLIARY Officer there is no confirmed progression and also ittakes years to get promoted.

Cons

Long hours

Manageable Job

Recommended for young adults. Elderlies are not advised due to the intense long hours and physical requirements. Stepping stone with no prior experience. Salary payout always inaccurate and shortage. Overtime not keyed in accurately. What a shame for a big company.

Pros

Fixed Shift

Cons

Long hours / Low Wages / Inaccurate Payout

It was not productive and the hours working was ridiculous..

Very tiring due to the long hours. not productive as there was not much to do.Break time was too short. The 12 hours working for practically everyday with 1 day off left me drained and exhausted mentally. There was no time for rest exercises and family.. allowance are forfieted if you fail to complete the month's roster

Cons

Very long hours with little rest

Horrible Management, Long hours & disgusting favouritsm

Basically very long 12 hr shifts, you miss a work shift all the bonus disappear (not that its alot to begin with) Management is slow and messy.Workplace culture is hugely based on favouritsm. Have good connections or suffer.Work is alright, but with working hours that long, you really miss out on family, life and yourself. I enjoyed working along with my colleagues but other than that, pay is not much and it takes a toll on you eventually.

Pros

Nice colleagues

Cons

Long hours, supervisors who are not understanding
