A nice place to work in, good exposure to a dynamic aspect of HR! Within the HRBP team, we work efficiently with different Client groups and division of the Company which gives me the opportunity to learn and experience HR in a different level.
I started my work at here through internship and then contract-based. The management itself overall is alright. The workplace culture can be toxic especially with a boss that has a stuck-up mindset with poor flexibility. The hardest part was to understand a boss that tries to beat around the bushes till sun rises.
free drinks; good work-life balance; great colleagues not boss
bad location; no lunch provided have to drive out; boss that cannot understand its workers
A good company to work for as it was fun to work there. The management and the work place culture was good. The hardest part was that to ensure the payment was approved on time so that the payment could go out smoothly. The most enjoyable part was that we had a good team work as a team.
As a chemist in MSD, work is very fast paced and results has to be released accurately and timely in the expected number of hours. Learnt to manage the stress to handle a team of 5 that supports the analysis of samples for the whole shift, to be able to solve problems encountered by team-mates/ provide right advice so to not cause any delay in the release of results. To be able to plan ahead of schedule to be prepared for any emergencies that could cause any potential delays. To be able to manage enquires for the Management and colleagues from various departments. Management has high expectation with respect to the quality of work in the expected time, right first time for all the analysis, safety and good GMP / GDP. Hardest part of the job would be to time management. To delegate the work load fairly to their capabilities/ capacity, to plan and oversee the whole team and process from production. To be able to complete analysis on hand, adhoc matters and also review results timely and accurately. To attend to enquiries by various colleagues and the Management Team. The most enjoyable part of the job is to be able to meet all expectations within the deadline with no mistakes and to be able to work with a great team of capable / efficient personnel. To be able to a great work/family/friends balance.
Great work/family/friends balance, to be able to learn to work under a stress environment

What I like most about working with MSD Tuas South plant was its flexible working hour. The bosses were very cooperative and helpful. I felt like a family with all the team members. We get along very well and always helping each other to get things done. I really enjoyed my job and it was the best company I ever worked for. It was a productive and fun workplace.
A great place to work. Good environment. Friendly colleagues. Good medical benefits. Flexible working hours. Lunch subsidised. Transport provided including transport allowance.

Long hours sometimes.
capex management,opex management,vendor management, cost control, time scheduling and safety management . overall incharge of project design/project charter/cost control/sourcing/installation/commissioning/validation and qualification protocol.
a typical day at work always starts with getting things done ASAP once I reach the company, once I've done my routine work I would help other people by assisting them (what they need e.g documents) and sometimes would help for projects that need to be done in an instant. I have learned how to work in a fast-paced environment, to be cautious at all times! Everyone's SAFETY is their number 1 priority. The workplace culture is nice, everyone has different backgrounds, came from different places, are of different colours, different languages but has the same respect for each other which made me comfortable working there. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I'm given tasks to do, it keeps me busy paranoid stressed but at the same time I'm learning about myself (my strengths and weaknesses).
Has a good process of guidance to set people up for success in the tasks allocated to them. Every day is interesting with new challenges and investigations and there is always avenues to feedback to ensure that you get the support you need to complete your work.
