      Disappointingly incompetent management

      Pros

      Reasonable benefits. Reasonable remuneration. Despite what 99% of employees believe, you will neither be challenged nor working long hours.

      Cons

      Technology management long past their best-buy dates. Technically incompetent with a micromanagement focus. Staff are encouraged to follow and add to ever growing processes, many of which have no place in modern IT. Senior leadership often have no external experience, are hired from recommendation or come from areas like building management. Others run roughshod, shouting and raging. HR have introduced appalling training programmes and negatively impact hiring by averaging salaries to commodity roles. Finance have never updated a policy and their processes remain like a bank from the 1980s. Despite excellent senior management, DBS will never excel. The company should appeal to the mediocre and individuals who are happy with being average.
