Default Jumping into the tech private sector from public sector

Hi guys,

Anyone wants to recommend what are the best tech jobs available in SG? From what I see from the forum:

1. Top tier: FAANG (for top 0.5% so no need consider)
2. Shopee, Lazada, Foodpanda... ecommerce etc
4. MNCs and Large Banks: Microsoft, Big 4 Accounting, Barclays, Bloomberg
4. Banking sector: DBS, Standard Chartered etc
5. Finally, the public sector: Govtech, DSTA, CSIT etc

Anyone agree/disagree with this "ranking"?

Can put dbs at 6 instead. Their tech program hires literally anyone with zero experience of programming who watched a 2 hours react/flask tutorial video and applied what they learnt in the interviews lol. And many from the non big threes, sit suss sim all those.

How can standard charter below big 4 accounting firms? Big 4 pays ****. They are no different than accenture. Also big banks pay pretty decent for their tech talents.

Depending on who they work for. But I would guess only big banks/firms hire them. So prolly at rank 1 or so?

Thats true... so maybe Big 4 down to tier 4 or 5?

Would u consider standard chartered to be a "big bank"? To me, its more a local bank like dbs, ocbc, hsbc etc. I still think they are tier 4

Not the guy who said that but I agree with him.

Literally tasked to make some basic generic React.js during hackathon... Mind you I've never used this crap. 10 mins of research and just copy pasting code with my group.

All of us got offered... Lol 2 people in my team didn't understand local vs global scope. One guy didn't know why we couldn't omit loop conditions... Wtf seriously?

High monthly salary but deadend after 2 years. Go with tech MNC for a better future.

Hmm while itís true every company will have a IT department of some sort, I doubt banks or accounting firms should be the first place to look?
