is the weird culture also. for example, they told my fren that he is now the deputy head of the department, so now my fren damn loyal to his department. He E6 only lei, simi deputy head, actually is just team lead assistant la.

Told him the fact but he cannot accept the truth, say i anyhow say.

Just average cause thats the culture.

The superstar was devastated. This was 3 months before the performance review.
He was fixing bugs for production issue, was helping in prototyping. Was helping in R&D. Even write a paper for tech idea for internal competition which the team won BTW.

But the team lead basically said the senior management will downgrade, there is nothing he can do. He can't put all max points. Must have weaknesses to deduct point.

The superstar didn't take it well. He basically started coming in late at 945 am even later than most senior at 9 am. He also leave 10 min earlier now to catch the shuttle bus....

I asked him "you angry is it?"

He said "no ah the team lead ask me to not work so hard. This is me not working hard."
His performance was the same as every other fresh staff. Meet expectation. Bonus also same. We know. We confirmed with each other.

At first we were teasing him that he worked so hard the bonus must be damn good. But he showed us is the same as most of the team. But at the same time the team lead was promoted to assistant principal engineer M1. And the team lead can't even code. He just delegate work and check in progress

Sad to say, our superstar have left to join govtech. Now all the **** come to us and we don't know how to fix haha. All planning to quit let the team lead settle. But guess what, they hired a fresh grad and basically push everything to the new guy.

Most of us waiting for bonus then leave. Quiet quitting


Yes work hard does not equate promotion. So don't work so hard.
Better spend time to suck up to the boss who will promote you.
If they like you, you smile alot, polite alot, do all their bidding like slave they will use you.
Then when everyone else quit and there is a quota to promote you, then that's your chance.
You go st to chiong... Lol

dude confirm that you are not in ST. That's normal in ST. I'm in ST as an SWE for 8 years already, and when people ask me what are my skillsets, I tell them I clean the toilet there.

Meaning they are a liability to the company. They come there do bare minimum and collect pay. The fact that you manage to complete it and burning the weekends shows that they do not do the same. Usually, when you enter company, got fire to work but after a year or so, will get sluggish and do bare minimum.
