    I have been working at FPT Asia Pacific full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the youngest IT service companies in Singapore with a friendly working environment, close relations between bosses and employees. Performance-based promotion for true contributors. Opportunities to work with C-Level and engage in many C-suite networks. Hard working staff.

    Cons

    Not really an international working environment since most of the staff are Vietnamese. Negative sides of Vietnamese working styles still exist, especially administrative and operational mechanisms which are not professional and thorough enough. Average employment benefits.

    Advice to Management

    More critical and strategic thinking with investment on international resources and delivery value-adds rather than yearly cost and profit. Hiring more highly skillful resources than keeping leveraging on experienced but slow-moving individuals.


  2. "Need to be more international to be real Singapore-based company"
