Starting in Sep too, but no on-boarding email except for the previous one weeks ago asking to provide additional documents.

IBGT is ran like NS culture. Also you won't go far as a SWE here. Nothing much to learn, they mostly want BAs who don't code. Also, what is WLB lol. You have to do deployments on Friday nights which spans to Sat morning with no OIL. Also Friday, you are expected to report at your normal time.

Tech stack wise: Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Outlook, Microsofr Powerpoint, Confluence, Jira, Jenkins


This is true. Burn weekends

Are you posted there or just there for orientation?

Heard rumors that this program is closed and no longer open in 2023? Some of my friends who did hackathon early this year and passed but asked for Jan 2023 intake just got told that position is no longer available

seems like economy quite bad huh? shopee mass layoff, citibank closing branches overseas, FAANG companies also freeze hiring.

Stay safe guys. Tech market dying already.

Everything is true except the tech stack part. You're over exaggerating on that part but other than that yes, work life balance is non existence, most of the seeders are non tech idiots and retards like me from cs joined this because we were hoping we can finish task fast, spend the rest of our working time grinding LeetCode and finding better opportunities while getting paid.

Unfortunately that didn't work out. Most of us work like dogs, 9 to 9... Burn weekends.

I don't fking know for what. You finish ur tasks also they just assign you more from backlog. All these CONTRACT devs can't do their work so they pass to us seeders.

Their whole pipeline process is a mess. CI CD always failing.

Remember their app going down? No surprise lol their code base looks like it was written by 100 different people. Same code file can have 5 different styling and variable naming abuse. Some camel case, some all caps, some written like this "var1" "var2" ...

Wow... Many of my friends are also seeing the same thing in their team.

I finally understand why people talk so much trash about this program. I thought they were trolling... Sian I only wish I believed these people back then. Too late for regrets.

Why are they recruiting so many seeders? Just curious

the rest all go join other banks as associate and get higher pay

Same.. applied on sat, still no response....

Unregistered 07-10-2022 08:31 AM

I actually applied on friday so one day before you😂 if everyone else hasn’t received the link to the tests then i think we can relax abit but if other ppl start receiving alrdy then things are not looking good

I have emailed the dbs staff and they said the application process has changed, give them 2 weeks to follow up from initial application.

Maybe they send everyone the test link anymore🥹

Unregistered 07-10-2022 10:31 PM

Hmm I applied last Monday and got the DBS Career acknowledgement email saying 2 weeks also but yesterday I got my online test tho..

Can anyone help me? hahah I see the hackerrank got 2 coding questions, 2 MCQ and 1 bonus, quite scared, I haven't click begin yet.

What are the other reasons so few seeders stay after two years?

I'm not OP but I know a few school alumnis who stayed after 2 years, met them during a school event and they basically told me they stayed because they were lucky to be in a small LOBT team that basically works 9 to 5PM, no OT, fairly high bonus and incredibly laxed work. ( Mostly just building PoCs and maintaining servers )

They were also able to go from SEED to Associate (2 years) to Senior Associate (8 months) then AVP after 1-2 years thereafter.

Quite fast progression, their pay progression is like this:

5k as SEEDer ( 1st year )
6.5k as associate ( after 2 years of SEED )
8.0k as senior associate ( 8 months after completing SEED )
9.6k as AVP ( 1-2 years after holding SA role )

OF course this is not for everyone so if you're unlucky then you'll leave. Every company has this anyway, it's not DBS exclusive. FAANG also, some people become Senior SWE within 2 years while others are still SWE 2 after 4 years.

Anyone else in a similar situation?
