I worked at Mediacorp as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

I had supportive bosses who gave an inquisitive young adult opportunities to learn even though those were not the area I was initially hired for.

Cons

Having formerly been a statutory board meant that the company still carried along with it the bureaucratic culture from its early days.

    Interesting scope and breadth as a company, but friction in internal processes

    I have been working at Mediacorp

    Pros

    The work in MediaCorp is interesting and unique. Depending on where you are, the people can be very nice.

    Cons

    Rapid changes in the media industry and other challenges so there are many battle fronts. Company still not agile enough, after years of near-monopoly, but that saying, it is never easy to build a plane while flying it. Can see the efforts to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is of course very busy. Would be good if they can listen more calmly.

    It's an ideal place for either a stepping stone into a journalism career OR a retreat from serious broadcast journalism.

    I have been working at Mediacorp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Encouraging colleagues
    - The chance to explore issues especially in the South East Asian region which barely gets coverage in other news channels

    Cons

    - The salary standards are dismal as are the perks offered.
    - Serious journalism doesn't quite thrive given the restrictions of being a Singapore-based company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Pay peanuts and you'll get monkeys
    - Invest
