Callatay & Wouters Reviews
Pros – A family run business that works in a colaborative team effort in the development process, utilising some of the latest technologies whilst adapting older languages. They have encouraged management from within
Cons – The management is blinkered having come up from within. It is very much a product orientated engineering biased business with strong emphasis from Benelux with little or no localisation in the core. The marketing communications are poor with little desire to change
Advice to Senior Management – Bring in some external blood with experience of larger system vendors, localise the system for the regions being targeted, encourage staff development from outside company and the family

Only few competent managers
Advice to Senior Management – Train your managers to be managers!
Pros – -Many projects to work on
-Colleagues are very helpful
-Good place to gain knowledge about Financial products and IT knowledge
Cons – -Outdated language..(COBOL) but may be moved to the SAP and Java team..
-Support team leads to repeatitive work
-Even though there are Belgian in SG for the local team to get Knowledge transfer, there is not enough opportunities for the local team to learn.
Advice to Senior Management – There needs to be more opportunties for the Singapore team to get knowledge transfer from the Belgian team
