have to take much stress from demanding & unreasonable client and expected to give in to them most of the time even when we are right & they are wrong.

lack of resources and manpower & each RE is overstretched due to the volume of work being assigned as co cannot hire more manpower as each personnel is charged to client which client at most times refuse to pay for additional manpower.


lack of promotion and career progress and jobs are often insecure and not long term due to contract jobs being offered and a lack of project charge code means you will have to go if they cannot find another project for you to go to.
Pros
no work on staurdays
Cons
no promotion, lack of job security due to contract jobs

Jacobs as EPC company, it has great values and esteem job culture. The major draw back in Singapore is, poor management with cruel politics and no opportunity for good staff as there are many bosses not leaders
Pros
good job culture
Cons
extremely unqualified managers

A diverse cultural society with opportunities to work in overseas and room for growth.
No hierarchy system and there is a great bond amongst the reporting officer and subordinates. Everyone is treated fairly and a fun place to work in.

- 42 hrs/ week for working hour.
- OT will get paid off as well.

- I've learnt more on how to work, coordinate, collaborate with team.

- Document Controlling System is quite well.

- Management looks good, and can be negotiable.

- Workplace culture is good, I supposed.

- Design changes with very tight schedule, is the hardest part of the job.

- Pay day is the most enjoyable part of the job, because OT would get paid off for any extra working hours.
Pros
SOP is quite well, and just follow up. Good care on quality and safety.
Cons
Job is not so secure and it depends on market demand.

You will have opportunity to learn more as the work demands more engineering skills. you will tend to learn more things. your confidence will improve definitely. But you may not get much recognition. Pay is not competitive.

I was working Assistant Resident Engineer, position as clerk-of-work from CH2M side working together with Public Utility Board for New water project in Singapore. CH2M is good place to work. If you can work on as full time, I think that way better.

Encourage every staff to be competitive with other rival company by focusing on safety first, then productivity & progress. Supervisor handling one project is giving a free hand to show their capabilities to the fullest by engaging them in multi discipline project. Supervisors consider themselves as lead that will monitor the progress, quality & safety aspects of the project. He will be the eyes & ears of the Jacobs project manager & client project engineer/manager. Supervisor will report immediately to his superior if there is discrepancy in the progress reporting of the contractor including some discovery works.
Pros
Safety of everyone is top priority than anything else.
Cons
No incentives when working night shift.
