Nice colleagues
Accounts assistant (AP) (Former Employee) –  BishanOctober 7, 2018
Colleagues were extremely welcoming and friendly but the head was pretty distant from us all and was unwelcoming. Very tight on lunch breaks and expects us to work after 6pm.

Great workplace with fun colleagues
Systems Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Toa PayohSeptember 26, 2018
The timing is quite flexible; you come in early, you leave early and vice versa. Although, this really depends on your supervisor. You are not really required to work overtime or on weekends unless needed. In which, time-off will be provided for you. Handling customers can be tough, but having helped them through their issues is rewarding. We also ensure that the mobile products that are released to the public are as bug-free as possible.

Need to be less politcially correct
Executive Copy editor (Former Employee) –  Toa Payoh NorthJune 6, 2018
SPH could be more professional in journalism, instead of being too stringently politically correct in reports, especially those concerning local politics.

Odd hours for work
Web Uploader (Former Employee) –  SingaporeMay 30, 2018
As a news company, there's always news at odd hours. The shifts are long and have lull periods. You are always on top of the news, and can learn a lot about the world.

Productive and fun workplace
Customer Service Officer (Former Employee) –  MacPhersonApril 3, 2018
It was a contract job with SPH. There were many phone calls in a day. I learnt to work in a very fast pace environment and colleagues helped one another should there be doubts. Team work is particular important and the working hours are pretty long where one need to work half day on Saturday too. Solving the problems in terms of hard copies deliveries or internet usage for subscribers.
Pros
Good working environment

A place to work for myself .
Creative Director (Former Employee) –  Toa PayohDecember 8, 2017
Multi-tasking but ok with me,
I have learned how to listen, to share, to improve, to help, to guide, to lead a team,
After years , I learned how to lead a design teams by the method of ;
face it first, listen first, think first, work first then meet the team, guide the team for all projects and tasks.
A place to work with all friendly team members,
The hardest part of the job..."Budget",,,but it is not the end.
The most enjoyable part of the job, when you see... "Teamwork!"
Pros
Big company
Cons
Slow in Social media
