Ive been here more than 4 years and not planning to go anywhere else any time soon! I get to attend international conferences related to what I do, I have best food, get timely promos, get to attend my kids school meetings, performances and important dates.. I go to the gym 3 xweek at lunch time... I cant be any more spoiled!

    Cons

    Really nothing... This is the best palce to work for!.. I can tell you that the Singapore office and people are much nicer than the US though... just saying =)
