    Thank you for your encouraging posts and also your contribution for more than 10 years ! Your posts sounds really similar to another one posted on Dec 8 - my response will be consistent. For additional resources, need to talk to your managers - since we are into AOP season soon, it will be a great time to bring this up for a robust discussion. All the best !

    Pros

    Work life balance is second to none. Direct manager is the best i have ever had the pleasure to work with. Singtel is a well respected company globally.

    Cons

    Internal navigation can be a challenge. Once you learn how to navigate, its not that bad. Every company has its challenges so Singtel is no different.
