      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good Work Life Balance Lots of Learning Resources Supportive Managers and Colleagues Good Paid Leaves (AL matches market standard, Birthday Leave, 7 days of Learning Leaves) Good for fresh graduates to start career Good for self-learner (a lot of free time for self study, even during working hours)

      Cons

      Really slow progression Lower pay compare to market Low annual salary increment Manual deployment is really pain and waste of man-days Manual testing is the biggest barrier for project profits, resulting in bugs and a lot of re-do work Current appraiser mechanism is only good for project team, but not friendly for talented candidates.

      Factory Style IT that can’t seem to improve

      Sep 21, 2020 - Project Manager in Singapore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Plenty of money and bonuses , assuming you are perm staff

      Cons

      Everything else, generally poor in most competencies with only a few key individuals in each business unit holding the fort so you can forget about training and development. Everything is on the job training. Work life balance is non existent for the key implementation teams and career progression is entirely dependent on your RO and management. Work culture is also very factory like where they think it is okay to work late night and over weekends just to meet ridiculous project schedules that shouldn’t have been agreed to and that every single knowledge worker is perceived to be inter changeable. “You think you are a big data expert? I’m sure the newly certified data base administrator can help you split the work load even though he has zero to no actual experience “
