Mass retrenchment of IT staff

IT Analyst (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at Singtel as a contractor for more than 5 years

Prosminimum 3 months bonus . nothing else

Conslow base salary
mass retrenchment up to 10 000 of IT staff .
HR will not consider if you have work in the company for long and try to retain you.
HR making alot of excuses for promises make and mention it is due to different HR handling the policy because HR also turn over very fast.

Advice to Senior ManagementOutsourcing IT solution causes slower response and all issues being delayed by vendor. No faith and loyalty left over by team by sudden mass retrenchment and rehiring.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great for average achiever

Solutions Manager (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at Singtel full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat place if you're an average achiever who just wants a job that pays the bills. Work life balance and you get to knock off on time. Lots of internal product training. If you dont know something, there's always someone that you can find to collaborate with.

ConsToo much red tape if they count themselves as an IT firm. Still very much a telco centric company. Lots of middle and senior management who have been with the company for more than 20 years with no other transferable skills in the job market.
A very big bell curve and they get new hire to fill the lousier grades during the annual review exercise.
Not at the frontier of the technology.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some good and smart people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A stable company, with opportunity for exposure for people with little experience. But bureaucratic and risk averse

Business Development Manager (Current Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I have been working at Singtel full-time for more than 5 years

ProsStable environment, friendly colleagues, top management leaders with a clear vision. Employees will have the opportunity for exposure in various areas

ConsFinance-focused, risk averse, various departments working in silo and not receptive to change, HR not very people friendly and lacking human touch, KPI structure not conducive for long term innovation in its people.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview company structure to reward long term innovative vision, not just short term success

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
