    Pros

    Good insurance coverage Good benefits Company transport at Changi South is provided. Knock off on the dot else you miss the bus.

    Cons

    Some people just want to listen to what they want to listen. Went through 2 weeks worth of discussion and reached an alignment that I made in the 1st meeting 3 weeks ago. Some managers just say whatever that will make themselves look powerful/resourceful/useful, at the expense of humiliating you. You will not come into their minds until the blaming game starts. All the advocates on looking at the real root cause are just talks. It is all about politic games. Shame on this because you are supposed to make a medical device that saves human life, not using them for your selfish move. Also, you got to grow your capability as a manager if you want to have such a big ego. For some unknown reason, most colleagues are not helpful to the newcomers. You got to learn most of the thing the hard way. In summary, don’t join this company until you know the coy culture has improved. The culture was too unbearable for me. Also, eat healthier. Because, after working there, I know I don’t want to have a pacemaker installed inside me
