    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Stable job.

        I worked at HDB full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Work-life balance, good starting salary, there are other perks and benefits like sports facilities. Large company and possibility for moving around in departments.

        Cons

        Can be very political. And most engineering work is outsourced to external consultants and contractors. Experience gained largely suited only for government work.
