You are wrong.
If you did read, you will realise that a few of my bosses in sg liked me and I was competent at my job. But some of them were later replaced by aholes.
I am just objectively saying I see a lot of politics in sg and many ppl being fired (not just me). In fact the more competent you are, I think the more they want to get rid of you, especially your peers but sometimes also your direct manager who may feel threatened.
All of these places usually have the same a-holes crazy ppl and lots of people leaving constantly.
A survey I read seems to suggest about 50% of people here are looking to change jobs annually and sg has the world's unhappiest workers which is just about right in my experience.
The corporate setting here (and actually most parts of the world) is filled to the brim with stupid and incompetent aholes and crazy women. It's the truth whether u like it or not and whether u are part of it or not.
This is the kind of 'tough love' you may get on this forum when you seek advice. You won't always get sympathy. In fact it's not uncommon to get feedback that you won't particularly like. But it doesn't make that feedback any less truthful or indeed useful - if you choose to consider it.
The fact is, you seem to be continuously finding yourself working for companies that are, as you put it, "filled to the brim with stupid and incompetent aholes and crazy women." So could it be that you have a lot of bad luck... or are just really bad at choosing the right organizations to work for?
It's certainly not the case that every organization here is that dysfunctional - and I'm saying that with the benefit of experience that comes from 28 years of living and working here.
You need to consider it may not be that all companies here are "full of stupid and incompetent aholes and crazy women". Maybe the problem is you. Maybe that organization is simply not the right culture for you. It happens.
I spent 2 miserable years in an organization where, to me, it was clear that there was full on Dunning Kruger Syndrome going on and it appeared rife with company politics complete with weaponised emails as standard. I hated every moment there but stuck it out because I needed the job. But the fact is, this organization has been around for decades, with a sterling reputation for excellence in its field. So it certainly wasn't going to change to suit me. I also realised that most of colleagues did not experience the same challenges that I faced. In fact most were proud to be there. So clearly I was the one with the problem.
I eventually found a new role in a new company and was infinitely happier. You have to do the same for yourself - BUT, stop blaming these organizations or some "Singapore corporate culture". It won't help you in any way.
