Self-driven learning, poor leadership

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Numerous learning opportunities empower individuals to cultivate self-motivation and achieve rapid advancement. Conversely, poor leadership that sweeps issues under the rug leads to reduced team morale.

Challenging place to work with.

It’s not easy to work in this place , scores poor on work life balance. Medical and other perks are ordinary.Management expects too much and renumeration does not match expectations and nowhere close to the industry.


Free Newspaper


Medical only for employees, not a very good plan as such. Increments and bonus needs improvement.

Friendly working environment

As a journalist, you are sort of expected to handling everything on your own. I was not familiar with the news writing procedure and industry but my superior and colleague were kind and patient with me.

Fun workplace

Good company. Nice management. They reviewed salary structure based on competitive market range. But looks a view like uncertain due to transformation

Senior management lack foresight and backward thinking

Avoid if you can - no progression. Long hours and not a place where you can grow. Management is also not interested in growing their staff professionally.


Helpful colleagues


Toxic colleagues, bad management

Good Benefits, no proper direction from management

Staff perks and benefits are good. However, poor management direction. People at the management level do not see eye to eye and are in a power struggle. Most of the commercial heads are just doing things that please their direct bosses and not for the good of the company. Favoritism and politics are often displayed in most divisions. HR does not thoroughly look into resignations and staff's unhappiness.


Annual leave


Long working hours, office politics

A good place to start out

You have to be very proactive and informed to do well in this job. It doesn't hurt to exercise your people-pleasing skills. The senior staff have quite old-school mindsets, which could be a good or bad thing depending on yourself. Job progression seems quite slow. Good company name though, it will open doors.


Gym, Doctor, Lots of free food, caring management


Long hours, low pay

Productive and fun workplace with lots of learning opportunitues.

The management is very open to new technologies where teams are given opportunities to explore and create production-grade solutions. Most of the development teams follow the agile methodology which promotes a very highly interactive approach to product delivery.

Fun Workplace but Limited Progression

fun team & family to work with, always brainstorm crazy ideas together. GM is a very good leader however people at the middle management level are self centered, back by upper management or just want to keep their bowl. Overall the cultural is fine but limited career progression.

Big organization

Nice colleagues. Pleasant working environment. No clear career progression or guidance from HR. Really big organization with many different and possibly duplicated teams which makes getting work done complicated.

Productive and Agile methodology of working

As a developer I would like to mention that working in SPH was a great experience for me because I had a great chance to attend so many trainings which the organised paid for. Other than that the teams in the organization was so enthusiastic and fun loving.

Productive and fun workplace

Throughout the day I completed various administrative duties preparing weekly/monthly reports for division meetings. Churning reports upon internal/external requests and helped managers/execs in preparing documents for presentation. The hardest part of the job, when given a big project by head division to be completed immediately, in a short notice and at the same time had to close the weekly/monthly reports. The enjoyable part of the job when everyone helped as a team in order to finish the crucial task.

Very happy working at SPH for more than 30 years. However always felt that my work was never appreciated. Favouritism was very predominantly practiced in my department.
