    Pros

    As far as the reason is concerned Singtel is on of the companies provides opportunity to learn and groom your personality in a professional way.

    Cons

    As I've worked in singtel in customer care as a customer care officer so the most challenging and daring to assist the Singaporean customers as they are high demanding and it is quite difficult to manage them thoroughly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During my whole employment tenure I had no issue with the management even though I may highlight that the management has to take bravery step to remove some black sheep from the management who neither suitable, satisfactory not beneficial in the company's interest.

    Good company

    I worked at Singtel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Family oriented culture, great benefits, opportunities to explore various career path, stable industry

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the industry the Company is in, re-organisation is often required. However, the management seem to over-look that certain process and system are legacy and might not be readily changed, resulting in additional work for the back-end support.

    Pros

    Lots of learning opportunities. Competitive spirit means that company performs consistently which translates to consistent AWS and bonus payout and no cost cutting measures that affect employee welfare.
    Higher management works really hard.

    Cons

    Management squeeze the most from you - also depends on department. If you can cope then the experience gained will boost your market value as an employee.
    Climbing the corporate ladder here means you job scope and what is expected from you rise exponentially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It can be demoralising to know that the chances of a second promo in 2 years is next to 0.

    Good professional company.Very good Singapore processes.Very soft,warm and nice people to work with.Very strong company

    Cons

    Bit resistant to change considering its legacy.There is a disconnect between the strategies framed by SIngTel Singapore and it's other subsidiaries working out of different geographies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the good work and keep changing with the times.
