    I worked at ST Aerospace full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I have been working at ST Aerospace full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable, Average bonus, Fairly work-life balance

    Cons

    Low annual increment.
    Staff who make mistake continue to get "Good/Very Good" for performance.
    Good staff who is not making any mistake will be asked to "answer" for other staff mistake. And they will only get "average" performance.

    Fresh degree grads getting the same salary as those(also degree holder) with 5-6 years exp.
    Entry level degree engineer salary are reviewed constantly, but those with experience (5- 10 years) are not being reviewed.

    Low annual increment (2.5 - 5%) based on past 10 years exp, not as what HR stated as 4-7%.

    Advice to Management

    Please review the salary of those experience engineers.

    I worked at ST Aerospace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good bonus payouts and job stability

    Cons

    Culture and practices are too militarised with draconian rules copied directly from the military. Olden times was worse; no camera/smart phones allowed.
    Staff has a retirement mindset and unwilling to change ideas/notions. As a result, many become 'clock-watchers' and not willing to work beyond the indicated working times. Do not join if you will be affected by ST overseas scholars being more preferred in career advancements (choice of good courses, projects etc) than yourself, or their preference for retired armed forces personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and challenge norms of the contexts today instead of blindly submitting to tried-and-tested practices seen in the military. ST group has tremendous expansion potential but hindered by outdated culture/practices and risk-adverse mindset, often losing first-mover advantage.
