Hi Guys,

I have received a Job Offer from a Big Banking firm of Singapore as Technical Consultant through a consultant.

I need assistance from you all guys about the work culture in IT industry in Singapore, like working hours and work life balance.
I have read at many place that in Singapore people works like crazy, means people works for 12 - 15 hrs daily.

It would be highly appreciable if somebody can update me regarding the work culture for IT (Java Guys) in big MNC banks in Singapore and also the cost of living in Singapore.

Any body can share there experience of Singapore regarding the same issue.

Looking forward to get the reply for my query.

Singapore working culture is quite ok, IT in bank may sometimes work up to 9-10 hours if schedule is tight, but im sure usually 8 hours is most common. it's quite dependent.

anyway, don't worry about working like crazy, there's definitely no such thing

living cost is not high, a lunch costs 3-5 S$

house rental may be as low as 500 for a single room, or as high as 2000++ for an apartment

of coz it depends on your experience and other benefit

if you are foreigner, company is not necessary to pay you some extra money, call CPF, besides your salary.

anyway, 5400, is nearly twice of average singapore income. if they even take care of your housing, it's indeed a good deal.
