Does Grab offer massages?

Pros

In Grab, you get to work with the most exciting problems and some of them, you are hard-pressed to find elsewhere, if at all. You also get to experience first-hand technology stack that rivals even the best of companies out there. I know because personally after transitioned out of Grab, I found myself at ease due to familiarity with most of the technology/services that other reputable companies are also using. You also get to work in a fancy huge office with a nice view. Most teams here gets work-life balance. Most team leads are competent and people are both smart and friendly. You will be above-average compensated if you work on tech by Singapore standards. It's a very diverse company and there are mostly no discrimination on your gender, age or race. High management have a focus on being kind and other good values. Depending on which team you are in, you may also get to travel a lot (during pre-COVID times), since they have a lot of offices around South-East Asia. Last but not least, at Grab you will feel that your work is actually making a positive impact and you can see it with your own eyes and ears every time you walk out the door. There is real job satisfaction here.

Cons

Aside from the above average salary in the region, there isn't much other benefits to speak of - don't expect free food the likes of Facebook/Google; don't expect OT pay, don't expect unlimited ice cream. Do expect to get mid-range "used" Laptop (they use MacBook Pro here for Software Engineers). And god forbid if you break it accidentally, you get to pay for the repair, except if your department head agrees to absorb it. Aside from the occasional freebies and ice cream, don't expect any freebies that are regular - except for maybe drinks etc. Culture-wise, it's also average - there are no coaches and I get the sense that the company isn't willing to go the extra mile to invest in your well-being. Although your mileage may vary, generally company is pretty stingy when it comes to promotion and increments. Whenever there are questions about benefits during townhall, company will reiterate how they are already doing above average (which is true) and tell grandfather stories about how early grabbers gets much less and work much more. In terms of the office environments, even though you get to enjoy the view, you get sub-standard desk (no standing desks) and chair to go along with your old and slow laptop.

Advice to Management

I strongly believe that Grab is already doing a lot of things right - and it's a running an extremely successful business. However, I do hope that the company is more willing to go the extra mile in terms of employee's benefits. Implement mentor system, invest more in growing and improving your talents. Improve the culture, and don't be afraid to organize more fun events. Give employees better desks, chairs and give employees the top of the line fast laptops - these are one-time cost that makes people the happiest the most and actually let people be at their best and most productive. Don't outright dismiss it every time people asked for something better if they are being reasonable. If people are happy, they tends to do better work. And finally, please cares more about the well-being of your employees. Even if you are not willing to improve the salary, there are many more cheaper things to do that actually make people happy - and I have mentioned some of them here.

don't expect free food the likes of Facebook/Google; don't expect OT pay, don't expect unlimited ice cream.
