    Poor work ethics

    Project Analyst (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    Prosabove average salary.... coffee is good in canteen

    ConsPeople will expect you to work for 24/7, You will not be asked rather you will be informed to work on weekend (which happens almost 3 weeks of the month). You can't make any plans once you are working for it. Most of the projects having support kind of activity, there is nothing as such development.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a good place for engineers

    Consultant (Former Employee)

    Prosproper work life balance unless you are new hire (mostly contracts) in which you need to work like mad

    ConsBoring assignments for tech people (mostly maintenance and customization) - thus low pay.

    Most of the project managers have less than enough skillsets - I suspect the reason their underlings keep work despite all the nonsense are due to contract renewal process.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote excellence instead of ability to suck up

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    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
