    5. 3.0
      Former Employee, less than 1 year

      Great team and culture, bogged down by archaic HR policies

      Nov 28, 2021 - Software Engineer in Singapore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great team to work with. Good working culture, with competent boss. There are lots of learning opportunities in the company. Good to have GovTech in your CV.

      Cons

      Job grade meant to be based on assessed skills and competencies, yet HR will aggressively try to find the monetary value of the candidate - such as current or expected salary - derive job grade based on the monetary value, and then take the lower one. This is bad. Should a candidate be lowballed in his/her previous job, it would mean his/her grade would lag by a few grades than his/her assessed potential, and that wrecks career progression. Should the candidate realized where his/her grade stands in the whole of GovTech once he/she is in, it either leads to infant resignation, or if stay on, a lack of will to continue to strive for the company.

      Pros

      A lot of trust in me and my team to define and deliver what is needed. I really enjoy being able to decide product direction and implement it.

      Cons

      When you have to work with the rest of government, it becomes a lot harder to get things done especially when there are people with huge egos who would rather stick with the status quo. But this happens everywhere.
