Good place for learning

It highly encourages learning via various platforms which include e-learning and in-house training. The company has well-established standards for working procedures that people could just ease into the working environment easily.

Productive and Family Based Workplace.

Thoroughly enjoyed my time working for DP. It was a pleasant environment with good directors and bosses who were fluent in their management capabilities. DP having a footprint not just in Asia Pacific but in Dubai, provides lots of learning experiences for architects and technical associates alike with dealing with different safety procedures and standards of each countries etc.

Pros

Overtime Pay, Basic OT pay, HR organised regular activities, Friendly and pleasant bosses.

Cons

Long working hours for certain projects but it is normal.

Great company to work for.

I have learned a lot from DP. There are plenty of knowledge to share and learn from each other. DP has international standard of management as well as design.

Good place to work, Learn and advance career development

DPA and DP engineering is a well known company in Singapore and DPA have its own permanent staffs such as projects, Directors Architects , Engineers etc. but We are site staffs and employed by DPA on contract basis. If our contract is ended and if DPA didn't have any new project at that time we have to find our own job.

Good advertisement for job

The data input still need to improve as it keep showing errors after key in and saved. When after I fill in my resume in the provided resume format the result came out different from what I had keyed in.

Cons

Some people are shy or not interested

Working with DP is very exciting, after office we play dart and eat dinner.

My typical day at the office, I work on the project assigned to me, I work on the details that are needed on the job,Singapore is a different country they have their on standard and at the same time we also refer to other international standard to complement the local standard, co workers are well manage because of the office work standard that are easy to follow. My co workers since some are local professional they are easy to teach and there are plenty of references to follow in they are in doubt about the subject. The hardest part of the job is when we have a submittal and there are still some loose ends.to complete, and the enjoyable part of job is when everybody working on the project are all cooperative and harmonious.

Pros

When the boss calls for a meeting during lunch time outside the office.

Cons

Well I guess every architectural office always work's late

Very productive, long working hours but satisfactory.

Manage the full project cycle and administer day to day operations of the resident site staff office and support project team and the appointed consultants. Ensure timely execution of the works and maintain quality control and ensure that the upgrading/construction works are carried out in accordance with the contract specifications, drawings and all other contract documents and conduct/chair site meeting. Review the Architectural drawings, reports and specification submitted by the contractor at each stage of the Design to ensure completeness, correctness and compliance with the scope of work and agreement requirements. Everyday I learn new things from the complexity of the construction and the problems related to design details, buildability and construction issues. I don't have any problem with my staff (I manage them well) as I am answerable to my directors. The hardest part of the job is to satisfy consultants' requirements in opposition to site issues. What is designed may not be practical to construct on site. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I see smooth progress of works based on schedule with good QA/QC works on site and everybody is happy about it.

Pros

I am taking the lead.

Cons

Long working hours.

One of the best team in corporate style company

Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them. The office started to get crowded as the company grew and it was more difficult to get to know the new people. There was a lot of variety in what I did each day, ranging from the monotonous tasks to new projects that were challenging and exciting.
