    Grab leaders don't care about employees. Employees are just money making machine. They don't care if people leave. Because anyway, they are getting new hires.
    I remember, in a townhall, question was being asked to Anthony regarding why only 'customer first', why not 'grabber first'?
    As usual, they promise 'grabber' will be their top priority. But never actually reflected. It's just not in the culture.

    I know in Grab people complain about bureaucracy,lack of work life balance, no HR policies but I am not sure if people are leaving because of these?

      I worked there. It was the worst workplace I’ve ever experienced. Bureaucracy, passive aggressive colleagues and unhelpful HR made me really miserable.

      There might be other reasons why they leave. For example Singaporeans tend to change jobs frequently. It’s easier to get a higher pay somewhere else than a promotion at your current job.

      Yeah, main reasons to leave for me are mainly because of the company culture and lack of right leadership. Their HR team is the mess, they are honest and hard working people, but lack of experience and still amateur

      Most are immature. They are passive aggressive. HR is super unhelpful. Work life balance is nonexistent. Heavy bureaucracy.

      I mean it is hard to get into FANG esp in Singapore since they are not hiring aggresively. I think they pay pretty good compared with company like Paypal; Visa etc. Also I believe Amazon and Netflix is not hiring SWE in Singapore. While FB and Google is in hiring freeze, they only hire E3 most of the time. Apple has limited opportunities.

    I work at Grab. One of the more consumer facing teams. Work is good. Work life balance is good, but I will be leaving in 6 months because pay is very uneven. I get an "exceeds expectations" review but my pay is considerably less than what others get.

    Also most of the people are leaving because management has no idea what they are doing. Plenty of good engineers and nice teams.

      I think they expect you to get a super review.

    I am working at Grab. I believe work life balance depends on a team and manager especially. I am quite okay with the team and with my manager. Sometimes I hate my job but it is because of my role only. All employers consider employees as a resource of making money.

    Why are you asking community if you should leave or not

    You should listen to yourself man, if you like it or not and align with your goals
