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

Pros

You'll get the chance to pick up a lot of people skills - managing bosses and peers etc. There are also really smart and good people inside that you can learn from.

Cons

Somewhat long working hours doing work that sometimes seems "extra". Company doesn't seem to have a very human touch in dealing with consumers - and similarly with employees. Lots of hierarchy and layers.

Advice to Management

Make some clear choices - do you really want to innovate? Or just make money? If you want the former, it's time to start hiring hustlers and real engineers - you don't outsource everything.

    I worked at Singtel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ethic for hard work, getting work done.

    Cons

    Terrible mid- and senior management politics, everything is escalated before it can discussed. Not a culture of calling out issues, openness and honesty. Many of mid and senior level management levels have been with the company for 20 years, know the internal ways, but have little value on the external job market.

    Advice to Management

    Worry less about the culture of saving face and fancy innovation and more about what your customers pay for and having an honest and open place to work for the staff.
