    GSK is nearby my previous company. Have to walk quite a distance from Boon Lay MRT. Somemore the bus service sucks. Like 1/2 hr per bus.

    But they provide company transport though.

    Sub-contractor working in the pharmaceutical industry count or not?

    Generally, the pharma co. like all big multi national industry got good benefits.
    Like they get a day off on Friday because Good Friday fell on a Saturday. Sub-contractors still got to work.
    Also most provide company transport.

    During the bad times, some were still getting like 3 month bonus where else we had none and pay-cut and praying that we still have a job. So good or not?

    GSK also have a plant in Pioneer road area. Near Gul Road.

    i didn't know GSK is located near Jurong area, always thought they are at the east side.
    Sub-contractor not counted lah.

    yes, some MNC are willing to give good benefit and that is one of the reason why i decided to change job even thought i am not train in that area.

    what abt Wyeth/ Pfizer/ Merck sharp & Dome etc?? anyone work there?

    Basically they are about the same. Have done work in GSK, MSD & SP.

    MSD, SP, Wyeth and Pfizer are all in the Tuas area. Pretty far if there is no co. transport.

    Nowadays, can see a many young techs (guys & gals) from the polys working there. Also, there are many foreign staff too.
