Nearly one in four IT workers want to quit their jobs, according to a survey conducted by the Singapore Computer Society (SCS).
Around 23 per cent of respondents said they intend to leave the industry for a new career.
The poll also showed that younger workers, especially new entrants to the industry, have a stronger desire to leave it.
While the poll did not say why, The Straits Times spoke to 20 infocomm professionals - and reasons such as low prestige and a poor work-life balance came out tops.
