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.
Pros
Gym, Doctor, Lots of free food, caring management
Cons
Long hours, low pay

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
Pros
Teamwork
Cons
Long hours

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.

The culture is rather sleepy - your responsibility is fixed, defined and rather minimal. You do the same thing day in and day out. Job is stable and career progression is slow because turnover isn't high.
Pros
Good welfare and facilities like gym, good work-life balance
Cons
Lack of personal development and career progression

Job Culture
- workplace culture varies in every department. mine was a stiff, unfriendly, bureaucratic type of culture.
- employee's efficiency and productivity on the job is based upon whether you render extra office hours or not. totally wrong.

- oftentimes, you teach yourself to learn the job. though some colleagues may be willing to help but asking for help slows the team down. you are expected to deliver the "bestest" quality at a lesser amount of time.

- senior folks or those who have been with the company for far too long, are mostly (not all) are like spoiled babies by management and at times are condescending towards the newbies.

- there is professional growth but perhaps not for long term.
Pros
good location, learning on the job, some supportive colleagues, nice facilities (gym, canteen with cheap prices, heard there's now a cafe at the lobby)
Cons
difficult bosses, lots of bosses, stiff culture, etc.
