Very small compared to their GA program. SEED salary and progressions is abit sad, but high starting though

Unregistered 20-04-2021 11:31 AM

Any hope for someone with 0 IT background, but willing and passionate to learn about IT to join this programme?

0. Why would someone pay you 5k if you have 0 background? If you are in finance, you can only get an insurance job with 0 monthly pay. Only comission is given.

DBS rich mah. That's why can mass hire 5k/pax without interview, only via hackathon and basic coding questions

It's not that. So long as you show basic coding proficiency, you are above the population average for technical ability. tech market is currently overheated and DBS can't attract top talent with skills, so they settle for this. Good coders go to FANG, Bytedance, Shopee, govtech, foreign banks.

DBS is still small compared to bigtech. Bigtech has 3x dbs revenue growth, 25x dbs market cap. Even their operations incasia is much bigger than DBS and they hire much lesser people. Thats why when people here said bigtech paid too much how they can survive, it is a joke. They can easily afford to pay 30k per month per headcount and still very profitable, but of course they try to adjust to the market rate. They have their internal calculation like top 5% compensation times some multiplier.

DBS seed doesn't pay nearly as well as Big Tech. Add on inferior branding and it's no surprise that they can't attract proper tech talent. It's well-known in the tech community that local uni CS grads shun the three local banks.

I think this is too much if someone doesnt know the basics and expect 5k pay. However salary in tech will keep increase in the next 3 years due to more tech companies set up their branch in Singapore.

Anyone here after the latest techtrek:) Also any clue on how many people they might take from 150 peeps

Unregistered 07-05-2021 07:03 PM

They usually take around 10% each batch

Anyway, I'm currently in my second year at DBS after joining their SEED program. For the fresh grads who are attracted by the 5k starting salary, there are trade offs for this

First is the progression, which is almost non existent. It feels like they intend to keep you as associates for very long to get the ground work done instead of promoting you. Plus, salary increments are very very low too and the working hours is exhausting after long.

You might be better off at a tech firm or in another bank.

Then why don't you look for other opportunities? Is there any reason for you to stay?

How is the turnover rate for SEEDers?

I'm looking to exit after completing the 2nd year. Many of my peers are also too.

We're mainly trying to transit into tech firms after, but still applying

All the best though!

My sources tell me that DBS tech division is hemorrhaging staff badly because they just paid out terrible bonuses and increments. For hot skillsets like DevOps the bleeding is even worse. I heard more than half of DBS DevOps team has left after collecting their bonuses in March. Just proves the point that local banks like to lowball their people.

DBS don't intend to keep their SEEDers for long and are aware on the high turnover rates, thats why they hire so frequently and conduct so many techtreks.

As mentioned previously, if youre looking for a role with progression this is not suited for you.
