    Systems Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsGood environment
    Not too much rules.
    Big company

    No clear direction/ prospect for career path.
    Most of the time felt alot of time wasted doing adhoc tasks.
    Some bosses doesnt care about promoting own staffs, even hardworking ones.

    Good benefits, structure and environment

    Consultant, Applications (Former Employee)
    Bugis (Singapore)

    ProsGood branding, easy to mix into local culture and environment. Colleagues are generally fun and cooperative. Especially cohesive when you happen work in small teams for projects.

    ConsUsually starts with contract rather than permanent job. You have to love IT to join this company. Working hours is typically long, eating to weekends even but that's just the nature of IT industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet closer to the low level employees, share the company or project vision, Ignite and influence them the vision and spirit.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place for industry exposure.

    Lead Consultant (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsStable environment with good bonus payouts.

    ConsNot much of a plan in place for effective talent management for a large enterprise like this. Too reliant on foreign talents as there is a general negative perception of e firm famongst e local. A large proportion of e FT are trash.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no clarity on each individual career path. There is no certainty for promotion either regardless of your potential for higher office as it is largely a subjective exercise by the sdd n e pm of ur department. Shd adopt e scheme from e big four audit firm since it is proven n tested.
