Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Its only good if you join as a middle grade manager and above or you are looking forward to retirement the moment you join because the organisation does not have any habit of recession or sacking of staff

Cons

Poor career progression for entry level staff.
Still function like a government despite it being a listed companies with plenty of associates around the world.
Too many layers of approval to clear for any project initiatives

Advice to Management

Please wake up and get the right people for the right projects instead of trying to make do with whatever resources you have or hiring the wrong people for the wrong jobs

    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

    Pros

    Great colleague, very good place to learn about telco business. HQ is here in Singapore, so support is never an issue.

    Cons

    Support is never an issue if you could escalate high enough. Politics prevents most task from being easy.

    Advice to Management

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