    It really depends on which school you go to and also largely influenced by parents' expectations. And probably when grades are regarded highly in Singapore, the stress and pressure to perform is probably more prevalent.

    I think the academic rigour that we experienced, which has been influenced by the education system and high expectation from our parents, has probably translated into our steadfast attitude towards learning and mastering our proficiency in picking up new skills. The high standards and structured academic system has challenged us to excel at what we do, and we are naturally inclined with this strong need to develop ourselves continuously for the purpose of being a better version of ourselves. Just my 2 cents based on my experience.

    Hi there! If you value inclusiveness at work and don't mind working more hours, I would say it's a great opportunity that you should seriously consider. As much as you are comfortable with your current working hours (since it's not as taxing), I would highly recommend you to take that leap and expose yourself to a totally new environment because it expands your perspectives. It's not just a consideration of a pay rise that you should factor in, but also the potential learnings, exposure, and growth that you can gain in your career. All these come into play, especially when you're making a career transition. I can see that you have also done your research to find out more from the people working in that prospective company, which is good because you get to hear from them first-hand, and everyone's opinions do differ, I agree on that. But at least you have a sense of how things are like and may be like, and it's okay if it doesn't meet your expectations, but you can consider grounding yourself to specific work values that will stick with you throughout your career. Hope that helps! :)
