    I have been working at Grab full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great $$ potential * company features as ~14h highest valued "unicorn" tech company -- over USD10B * lots of "untapped" markets -- various markets and products to expand to - Genuine focus on the customer and on improving communities - Management is actively attempting to fix outside SG trust and bureaucracy issues

    Cons

    - Working with headquarters in Asia is tough (US <= +15h => SG) * management is far away * key stakeholders and deciders also far away -- work goes slower * lots of meetings outside my 9-5 (but flexible to arrive late next day) - Dev-to-Prod cycle is way more painful than necessary (bureaucracy & trust)

    Cons

    1. Some projects are cross-sites (although not common) and those requires collaboration across time-zones. 2. Company grew too fast, getting things to market fast is important to grab market shares. Thereby accumulating tech debts. 3. Moving from startup to established company often require some amount of process. Need to define those process.

    Advice to Management

    1. Limit the amount of projects that is cross R&D centers.
