Why do Singtel employees quit?

Pros

Telecommunication is expensive in Singapore, the only good reason to join Singtel is the staff discount. Work life balance - Apply for an access and you can take a vacation.

Cons

1. Growth - it will take you forever to learn something new if you are experience. 2. Processes - You will be stuck in process forever 3. Onboarding time - Takes you 2-3 months to get onboard (laptop setup, software installation etc). you need to get permission to install chrome. 4. Feedback - Whenever you try to raise concern/feedback for the team, people start giving you advices like chill before the storm comes etc etc. Nobody wants to improve. Nobody cares if you are happy or not everybody is just doing their job by the books. If you have joined the company by mistake please i beg you never be candid about your opinions people will start hating you, stop talking to you. Also never correct any person who is superior to you, you will be dropped out of the future meetings. 5. IT support - Try not to visit them, you will end by wasting your life there. 6. Approvals - Apply for an access and go have a bag packing trip in Europe for 20 days. 7. Mails - Please take a crash course for email writing before joining. You will end up writing mails the whole day. 8. HR - I seriously do not have words to describe the HR. I was new, got an injury, kept pinging the HR about the medical policy and all, he did not care to respond back. End up paying from my pocket. 9. My manager was changed without any prior notice. 10. Below market standard pay. 11. No transparency.

Advice to Management

The company is a mess. Please dnt hire young employees, you will end up spoiling their careers.
