1> Most cos here have 40 hour work week - not including lunch break. But dont kid yourself , anywhere you go in the private sector , your actual working hours will depend on your equation with your boss

2> IT (banking) and electronics(semiconductors) - sure lots of options. If you have specific concerns easier to answer them

3> You are always better off working with an MNC , large Singaporean co better than a smaller one. Thats ranking is for salary+working hours

Hope that helps
