Working environment

Good work culture, one of the few contractors that has a 5 day-week. Trust between Japanese boss and employee. The most enjoyable part of working in Takenaka is the completion of Changi Airport Terminal 4.

good

nice place to work and good company to be in. 2 off day per months workplace culture has its own way of running by the management. The hardest part of the job is hard to control main con workers when the management don't really like to support the safety dept

Productive and very supportive bosses

- Takenaka corporation was a Japanese and oldest company in the world. Our big boss was very supportive to all their staffs in any means. They give good packages as bonus every yr. Most of them, are very honest human being as i encountered the when i practiced my career. They have the tradition that every staff must to have a welcome party and probably they like to treat us when we accomplish some advance duration works.

Skills enhancement

Daily tasks for every sub-cons should be directed to them. But for myself, I need to be ready to give an instant solution whenever there are need to be make a decision from discrepancies between construction drawings and the site condition. Learned to manage best solution from every problems that were been experienced Excellent treatment from management is everywhere in this company Seniors are very supportive in terms of decision making. The higher management would rid the hard part of the job as there are very supportive and hands-n site. And fully attentive whatever difficulties on the work takes place. Most enjoyable part is when I've given a chance to be a part of one of the icon here in Singapore.

Pros

Site Allowances, Meal Allowance & Overtime pay

Cons

Fun colleagues

A typical day at work will be doing my daily reception duties. Ensuring all guest and phone calls are attended to.Management wise, the company could have excel to greater heights if they adopt a more open minded concept compared to the old fashioned manner. And professionalism on staffs performance plays a great deal too .

Pros

Going back on time

Cons

No bonus, no priviledges
