Employee

Low salary, lack of learning and development, micromanaging culture, slow progression, some of the staff do minimal work to get by, very hard to shine unless you are very outspoken just to get visibility.

Poor unjust culture, employees feel criminalised, human resources lack humanity.

The job itself is enjoyable, pay and benefits provides for a decent lower middle-class standard of living, this decreases each year as salary increments are typically lower than inflation. However, managers belittle employees and feedback is regarded as complaints. The longer the employment the more jaded employees are. The organisation lacks just culture and managers are not penalised for mistakes while regular employees are crucified. Job advancement typically reserved for select few.

Pros

Decent jobs.

Cons

Culture, management, depreciating salary, low job advancement opportunities.

Typical Singapore company

Lots of opprotunities to learn, require to work very very hard, be very adaptable to ever changing work nature, free ticket every year, salary below average and unable to meet the ever increasing inflation

typical singapore company under paying staffs

dont expect much from this world known airline. they will pay you the minimum they can. also obvious skin colour and gender plays a part here if you are to succeed.

Pros

work life balance

Cons

low pay

Fun workplace with colleagues from all walks of life.

Structured inflight procedures that allows you to work independently during flight. Colleagues are generally nice and fun! Since you get to meet new crew every flight, it definitely teaches you how to manage different team dynamics!

Pros

Travel the world and meeting new people every flight

Cons

Odd working hours

Not all that glitters is gold

Not a good place to work if unless you’re from an elite and prestigious local uni. Even then, the salary is way below market rate. Only pros is the yearly free travel, otherwise really bleak outlook for an ambitious person. Scholars act like they’re all that, super cocky for no reason at all. Toxic culture if you’re unfortunate. Progression is not easy unless you’re very outstanding and outspoken. Often need to deliver and perform above and beyond to get your well deserved recognition.

Progressive and modern workplace

Company places great emphasis on digital transformation and adopting best practices in areas like Agile, UX and cloud. Culture is great and people are friendly.

Pros

Open and flat culture

Cons

Very far in the east

No career progression

Good company to start off career. Vey slow or no career progression for ground staffs. Unless one is a flt crew, flt attendant or in mgmt. Majority of staffs are very senior staffs whom are happy and comfortable with their respective positions and remuneration.

Fun Workplace

eye-opening experience that you can get once in a lifetime. not only you are able to meet people from all walks of life, you are able to explore the world.

Pros

-working hours are lesser than working an actual 9-5 office job, -have a lot of time on your own overseas and in singapore.

Cons

-standbys can be quite a hassle, you are not able to plan your time on days you have standby.

Productive and enjoyable

I was very lucky that i got selected as a cabin crew for a very top class brand known throughout the world called Singapore Airlines. The training i received gave me the confidence to deliver a top class service to the passengers of the airline. I was also taught how to prepare and deliever food and beverages onboard. Skills like communication,firefighting,first aid and how to problem solve have enriched my life. I also got to see the different cultures and the way of life of other countries.

Pros

I had to work hard to deliever the best cabin services.

Cons

Been away from family and friends for long period of times.

Toxic work environment caused by a singular profits focus and total disregard for employees.

Avoid working there as an expat as you are under 24/7 scrutiny from the company and the government. It is a very typical “look for someone doing something wrong” approach in the country and thus in the company culture. A feeling of zero freedoms and “bet your job” 24/7. Too bad because the common people are wonderful and the country is amazing if you like all fluff and no substance, however the beauty of Singapore is unmatched any where in the world that I have been.

Productive and rewarding

The job in SIA is the best job in Singapore as it is well paying and rewarding. One gets to fly free and visit many countries and able to stay in 4-5 star hotels. Comprehensive medical coverage and free or discounted airline tickets are some of the perks. Excellent promotion prospects Cabin crew are well looked after and excellent work enviroment with adequate rest.

Pros

Free travel airline tickets

Cons

Prepare to work long hours away from home

Comfortable place with work life balance but no progression

very rigid in its policies and way of work, good if you are working for work life balance and do not have much career progression goals. good place if you want to focus on other areas of your life, but bear in mind the policies are quite rigid. not sure if they have changed their way of management in the current environment of uncertainty and covid
