Been seeing a lot of good engineers in singapore move to Indeed.
Besides the increased pay, curious to know how it is to work there? What kind of projects and technologies do they work on?
How is the culture? Would particularly like to hear from ex sg Grab people, if any.

    I don't know much about Grab but Indeed sucks. Lame technologies, lame management. Indeed pays rather good and they offer free food and drink but that's almost everything that are good about Indeed. If you are serious about your career, I don't recommend going there. If you just want to get paid well and do nothing, Indeed is a very good place for you.

      WLB is good. Party culture is also fun. But when it comes to technologies, Indeed doesn't have any strength.

      To be fair, soy is being de-emphasized in favor of React.

      Not sure about APAC office but US office are moving away from old tech and starting new techs. indeed is pushing hard on react and other new tech now. It usually based on team and isn’t that the case for most companies?

      Also, the quarterly review is heavily dependent on how your managers showcase your quarter and if the manager really knows the value of what you’re doing. I have a good manager and really tech focused so he knows that refactoring code etc is important but also can’t argue a lot of middle management in Indeed is incompetent.

      Tech stacks depend on which team one joins. I’ve seen teams working on old tech stacks to teams using new tech like React, NodeJS, Mosaic, etc.

      I atleast know one team in Singapore working on completely new tech stacks, and led by inspiring leaders.

      In terms of culture, Indeed is eons ahead of grab - I’ve worked in both places - grab is abysmally top-down, and product management at Grab seems more like siloed project management without data driven decisions. Grab mass hires people in SG without a structured objective interview process, that also reduces the average quality per hire.

    I worked in Grab. Indeed is incomparably better. The culture is inclusive, people are very talented and the projects interesting. I highly recommend it.

    Remember indeed doesn't give you stocks. They give LTIP that only start in year 3. AFAIK, they don't appreciate in price much.

      I hope you’re right cuz I have stocks in Grab. Having said that, I look at lyft and uber and I’m doubtful that going public would be a positive surprise.

      The value is very low. The chaotic and anxious leadership with the ‘super app’ idea doesn’t convince me either.

      OP
      so if you leave before 3 yrs u get nothing?

      Correct, you don’t get anything. That’s the downside. On the other side, if you stay 3 years you’re richer by roughly 300k
