    Working Experience

    Management (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsRoom to grow. People employed are committed to the cause of delivering good services and projects. A company that rewards employees with good incentives and bonuses. Shares can also be given to more senior levels.

    ConsSalary is not as competitive against those US MNC, banks and even step boards. Thus, likely to loose engineers quickly and retention is a challenge always. Can work in challenging environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to in source too many foreigners whose pay is higher than Singapore employees. It will create disparity and will cause Singaporeans to leave the company very quickly.

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