Thank you so much for the re-assurance!!

Left DBS bank recently, was the first batch of SEED prog, many of my batchmates left as well. A lot of time is spent on actually managing people doing the projects, not so much on actually programming since a lot of things are outsourced. Aside from the jokes about CECA etc., we deal with a lot of programmers from India so you really need a lot of patience and have to repeat a lot of times lol. Dont expect those in tech at DBS to be proficient in their technical skills/knowledge, the barrier to entry quite low. My batchmate's had a new supervisor from a big US bank come in, easily earn 5 digit don't even do much work, but had to ask my batchmate about everything, cause 0 knowledge.
Probably a good place for the 'name' or if you can't find a job (which was me)

No serious programmer would join a bank imo, especially DBS, OCBC, UOB. They outsource too much of their tech work overseas or to vendors so you're absolutely right, it's more of managing these people than doing proper work.

The contract is legally binding. If you want to renege, just email the HR ASAP.

Only matters if they choose to enforce it. You think they'd waste the resources over a fresh grad?

For those who stays what happened to them? Do they continue in DBS or after 2 years it is over?
