    I have been working at Singtel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours, Smart Teammates, room to learn and grow. Great company to join if you're looking to break into the Asian Market. They have many teams but most people are kind and open. I love working with such a smart and bright team. It's also a fairly diverse setting, mixing in young and old people.

    Cons

    It's a large company so you have to learn how to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Onboarding process can be cleaned up a bit. It was a little confusing.
