    Pros

    Get involved in singapore airshow, lots of interaction with international aviation professionals, industry talks to you with respect

    Cons

    You're never in full control. Lots of bureaucracy typical of a government agency

    Advice to Management

    Provide more concrete visions and allow staff to think on their feet, rather than deferring to the long chain of command

    Pros

    - Hands-on overcoming of the learning curve - You get to see planes! And also the airport.

    Cons

    - Not much mentorship or guidance; I ended up working more with people of another company rather than my own hiring manager.

    I have been working at Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore full-time

    Pros

    Renumeration is good as compared to other statutory boards. Located in the airport, you won't have problem going for lunch regardless of rain or shine.

    Cons

    The organisation don't recognise non local university certificate. You will be put on the same track as a diploma holder even though u have attained a non local degree with flying colours. You will get a once off increment which is quite pathetic and that doesn't justify the $10 to $20k degree that u have invested.

    Advice to Management

    Retention strategies need to be improved. Transparency on promotion criteria.

    I worked at Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore full-time

    Pros

    Location is good, decent pay and benefits, staff can enjoy various discounts at the airport, hours are generally ok. A lot of training hours as compared to other organisations.

    Cons

    Management is very resistant to change. They find it hard to make decisions. Also, they are very unappreciative of their own staff, making employees feel dispensable. There is little empowerment of staff and consequently a lot of micro-managing. Management are quite short-sighted and do not have a clear vision for the future. Overall, employee satisfaction and happiness is low.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to learn to let go and empower staff, not demean and make employees feel replaceable. Management also need to learn to work with one another and not present yourselves as split and disagreeing with one another.

    I have been working at Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Airport environment is comfortable, flexible lunch hours, good exposure if you are not in corporate functions, compensation reasonable compared to other govt agencies but no work life balance in a few core divisions.

    Cons

    Disunited management that squabble frequently, divisions work in silos, supervisory practices not prevalent, private local degrees not recognized versus clear accelerated path with 2-year rotation opportunities for scholars (good if you are one).

    Advice to Management

    Nil.

    I have been working at Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Awesome location, working at Changi Airport and away from the usual business district. Decent pay as compared to industry. Good place to work at if you wish to retire there, but not good if you are ambitious.

    Cons

    Slow decision making by senior management. As a public agency, most processes may take a long time. In-house scholars are always preferred and given more opportunities. Limited career progression for non-graduates.

    Advice to Management

    Make up your mind!


  10. Government agency held back by weak corporate functions.

    Pros

    Job location at Changi Airport is far from the usual crowds. Colleagues generally are quite collegial and work/life balance is usually not a problem.

    Cons

    Corporate functions are weak, especially on the IT front. There is a general feeling that some parts of the organisation are filled with non-performing "deadwood." Decision making among senior management is slow. Generally, senior management is uninspired.

    Advice to Management

    Need to demand performance from all staff, esp those from corporate functions. Senior management ranks should be streamlined and the quality of leadership improved.
