Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Singtel full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Many things to learn
Good location
Well known company (sometimes for the wrong reasons)
Good health plan

Cons

Promotions is slow
Pay increments are really very incremental (small amount of increments annually)
Very bonus heavy (low base, 3-4 months bonus brings it back up, but this deters talent)
Long work hours (I assume many places are the same now)
Poor senior management engagement

Advice to Management

Review talent identification and retention program
Move from bonus heavy to attractive base pays
Keep up the good work on health plans

    Let the politics stays at your level, let the ground people do their job.
