Singapore Expats Forum

I am really happy :)

Discuss about getting a well paid job or career advancement. Ask about salaries, expat packages, CPF & taxes for expatriate.

I was talking only about my bank when said that most people in IT are in contract roles. I know my bank is unique in the way they hire( mostly contractors and employees only at senior more responsible levels) and are more conservative when it comes to hiring and firing and they came out of the credit crunch much better than some of the other banks.

Congratulations!

Is this bank CS by any chance?

Bingo! Did I give too many clues or was that a wild guess? :oops:

Haha, I have quite a few mates who work for CS, inparticular IT, so know the inner workings quite well and what you've been posting it just had to be CS!
