It's quite a broad question, and dependent on so many factors such as: Differentiation against the many firms in the same space Size of the consultancy Range of services Staff strength Engagement model - e.g. bodyshop vs. projects Niche area within FS or front-to-back / very broad Client base / exis...

You of all people should know that they only have a rudimentary grasp of words that are sung. You've ready enough bad lyrics on Karaoke screens I reckon. They normally don't have a clue. Even those who are English educated here have problem with the sung word, let along if it's been garbbled up in ...

Re: Pfffffttttt....

Having read a lot of posts on here by most of you, it's no wonder I took the attitude I did. Apparently you have all appointed yourselves the fountain of all knowledge and heaven forbid some poor buggar who is new here might ask a question you deign to feel is below your standards. Who's the troll?...

Re: Fleeing the Eagles Nest

I am sad to say, the Nuts are leaving Singapore in December. :o :o :o After a great offer from a great company in Malaysia it was hard to say no. This place has been a great resource for my 4 years in SG, I've learnt a lot, advised some people, had a giggle and met some great friends (you know who ...

I'd be very, very careful about Tailors here - it's a shady industry and an arbitrage play on people not having a clue about the process and materials used. Many shops just take measurements, and outsource the cutting and stitching to a sweatshop (that's why many tailored suits look exactly the same...

Honestly, if this means the IT body shops are on their way out, good riddance. It's not like these are attracting "high quality" migrants anyway and it really makes no sense for back office IT to be in Singapore. For those who have real skills and not commodity level IT expertise I'm stil...

Easy!

Those moths have been all over the CBD for months. At first they were plqacid, but over the last month they have become more ferocious and have now started attacking people (foreigners). Must be a government experiment.....
