Default Singapore Power EDGE Program

Anyone in the SP edge program?

Can you share why did you choose to join the program?

Anyone from SP also can share the working culture of the company.

Thank you

Donít bother.
Itís a dead programme thatís unreviewed and engineers are just thrown to your section to rot till you leave.
Most older batches (myself included) have left the company as there arenít any prospect to grow further.

Default Much appreciated

Thank you for your prompt reply! And I really appreciate the feedback

If you dont mind some questions, (just curious)

1. How long were you in the program?
2. Were you able to learn anything that added value while you were there? (since you mention assigned to a section to just do your own stuff)
3. If you wouldnt mind me asking, where have you moved on to now? (same industry, better jobscope, prospects etc.? or a different one)

TIA

the only way they can get people to join is via pulling fresh grads to their edge programme lol.
the longer u stay, the more underpaid u will be because annual increment isn't much.
progression in early stage is pretty standard.
2 years as engineer, then 2 years as executive then senior eng.
after that many people will stuck at the rank for a longggg time and when you realised it and wanna hop, prepare to take a pay-cut due to irrelevant experience. At that stage, u will probably LLST continue stay there until you retire just like many people. Only way in and no way out.

1) 5+ years. Most senior batches have left and never looked back.
2) yes but most technical skills are not transferable.
3) civil service. Better pay, better WLB, project management (which is a skill thatís transferable)

Thumbs down

With the company for over a year plus. Overloaded with maiantance works, too many switching incidents, shortage of manpower, keep threatening one more incident = cut bonus, attend to alarm at night for pathetic $50 (unchanged since 2000s), customer shutdown after 12 midnight with no OT pay. Overall morale is very low. Crazy HOB keep scolding engineers and TOs for no reason. How to work happily if they threaten to cut bonus every now in addition to our extremely low base pay and high work load?

Low base pay for fresh. $4k regardless of honours, no NS bonus. Stat board like PUB, LTA, HTX etc pays high $4ks, or $5k for fresh grads. Keep claiming pay is competitive, but refuse to compare with stat board but compare with low paying companies like OEMs and SMEs. Did half hearted salary review but still way below par. Never considered that our job is specliased, dangerous and hazardous. So many SP engineers quit and join civil service or stat board. HR so many "Directors" but not a single Director dare to say: it because of pay! Don't understand why HR need so many Directors if till today can't figure out why so many are leaving.

HR try to bluff about annual package and bonus, but civil service has mid and year end bonus, so adding together, government pays much more. SP average performer got 3 months bonus and that's it, civil service average performer PB maybe 2.5 months, add 0.5 month of mid year, 2 months of AWS + year end bonus. And remember! SP cuts bonus when there are safety incidents. Do the math.

Pls do not join and regret later on.
