    I worked at Grab full-time

    Pros

    Compensation Health benefits Friendly, supportive HR team

    Cons

    Clear bias in hiring. If you interview, look around the office and you'll see what I mean. Site leadership is not strong Work / life balance, you need to work full days in Seattle then most nights (to talk to Singapore) to get anything done Sterile office environment No path for career progression, unless the site leader likes you

    Advice to Management

    Get new leadership in Seattle who are going to focus on employee growth and culture, not just getting people at desks who will write code all day and night.

    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.
