    Pros

    Young colleagues, good oppotunities to work at big clients, some freedom if in a niche position

    Cons

    Old technology (Cobol), managers too young and lacking experience in ... Management!

    Advice to Management

    Put lots of focus to evolve from a tech startup with the rigidity of banking system to a real, grown-up company, taking care of its employees


  2. Great people and great projects but no business vision, few competent managers and no coherent HR policies

    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 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

    -

    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    -Outdated language..(COBOL) but may be moved to the SAP and Java team..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 Management

    There needs to be more opportunties for the Singapore team to get knowledge transfer from the Belgian team
