    I have been working at ST Aerospace full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly culture and colleagues
    Management tries to nurture the junior staff
    Steady income from aircraft maintenance and repair which alleviates pressure on R&D based projects.

    Cons

    Management aiming too high and unrealistic ideals about current level of technology.
    E.g asking degree holders to do things that even teams of PhDs or Google have trouble with, e.g 100% image identification of features.
    Mismatch of skill sets (e.g people with aero mech majors relegated to writing documents/specifications).
    Too many proof of concept projects.
    Big and bureaucratic. So much red tape procuring things.
    Fixated on aerospace sector projects, (e.g. due to it being the ST Engineering group's aerospace arm), and hence unable to pivot fast.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't just nod and say "yes" to each other on the conceptualization of projects. Try to steer clear of difficult poc work and focus on things that are more current and possible. Also, if there is no one in the department capable of the task, please hire a team of skilled professionals on contract, or outsource the work. Perhaps be more flexible to spin off smaller startup companies under the STA arm.

    Pros

    Some managers are willing to share their knowledge, caring, good benefits but hospitalisation benefits are not that great. Great pension scheme.

    Cons

    Hiring is not based on merit, too many red tapes, too many people from Air Force in the management which has almost zero to no knowledge of how to run a business- they retained their military mentality which is one of the down fall of the company. HR is the worst.

    Advice to Management

    In order to grow your business, you need people with strong business acumen, not people from the military that runs the company like a military unit. Please hire people who have experiences in the industry and not just pluck some person who has military background to put in the management- They should learn from scratch and way too arrogant.
