    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at HDB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work with some of the most self-sacrificing staff Work with some of the most resilient and dedicated staff who are able to handle the barrage of changes Good office location, lots of good food options for lunch Brand name organization, looks great on resume Quite well paid considering the amount of work you do Can learn a lot of useful things if you are proactive enough to explore everything deeper

    Cons

    Work with some of the most demanding bosses with super high expectations No autonomy, no ownership of your work, everything you do is to support the bosses and needs their clearance and approval until it becomes exactly what they want and not what you want Can be asked to do a lot of low-level work that no one wants to do
