      Glorified data entry job, wouldn't recommend for someone looking for a tech role

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits, SRS 50% top up. That's it.

      Cons

      - Be wary about the job position you accept, in the dept there is a pay discrepancy between data analysts and data specialist which isn't mentioned about - Contrary to data scientists/analysts roles, you spend 80% of the day doing data entry work which could be outsourced to vendors but they don't - Super high attrition rate

    5. 4.0
      Current Employee, more than 1 year

      Good people, decent work-life balance, high intensity and high micromanagement

      Mar 6, 2021 - Financial Product Analytics and Sales in Singapore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great colleagues, good pay for the job, great benefits and pantry. Great opportunity to learn about different player types in the finance industry and what they do from a third party perspective. And of course, a great opportunity to learn how to use the Bloomberg Terminal. Good work-life balance too, usually you can leave work behind past 6pm. The intensity of the work is quite high (can be a pro or a con depending on what you like) - you have to handle multiple clients at once and some days the volume of queries is high (more of a con)

      Cons

      Micromanagement + excessively stats driven.... nature of the job is customer-oriented and micromanagement is done to ensure enough coverage. The reason for such a management style is understandable, but it does take some time to get used to, and hard to say anyone likes this style of management. This is not to say the managers themselves are bad people though, they can actually be really nice people, who are just forced to manage this way by the system.

    6. 3.0
      Former Employee, more than 10 years

      Good start, end poor

      Jun 3, 2021 - Marketing & Events in Singapore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They invest in their employees with their training. Great health benefits.

      Cons

      Flat structure means little room for promotion. Culture is leaning towards increased marketing of oneself as opposed to team/department. Claims meritocracy, in reality, that is dependent on how much your bosses like you.

      Messy org structure and horrible working hours

      Jan 17, 2021 - Supply Chain and Logistics in Singapore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Handful of empathetic leaders who drive for excellence but yet demonstrate understanding behaviour. Bloomberg pays really well. Benefits are fantastic.

      Cons

      Working hours are as follows: In office - 8am to 6pm Outside office (night calls with NY) - 8pm - 11pm (not always but depends on intensity and how many people in NY needs you) Outside office (early morning calls) - 6am - 8am (same as above) Triage of issues brought up in 1:1 are typically shot down by manager through gaslightning. Clear signals are givens of issues and yet its not being taken seriously. Org structure and true understanding on resource allocation for projects/tasks is questionable. Not the most efficient decision making. Processes and work instructions are not documented so it's passed on based on knowledge of seniors. Yet another questionable process, SOPs are basic tools for new comers to reference and fall back on when in doubt.
