What's it like working with Singaporeans?

Postby queenmina » Sat, 10 Dec 2005 6:24 pm

Was wondering what it's like working with Singaporeans? They seem to have the best of both worlds--both Western and Eastern. They seem to be very competent and work-oriented. I also heard that the work pace is very fast and that it's a frenetic frenzy in the workplace. Is there any truth to this?

Thanks!
S'all good in the hood...

Competency, as well as other virtues, is not confined to a single place alone, or skin color. You find it everywhere, but it might be clustered in some places.

For example, here in Singapore.

Working with locals is just the same when I was working - with locals - elsewhere :D

Oh, you're here with your dad, which would make you quite young - I now feel slightly bad about certain jokes and innuendo . . .
