    I worked at Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable work environment with a nice corporate culture and job reward/bonuses. Striving to work for the better good of the community is one of the major attractions of working in this ministry.

    Cons

    Long working hours, expensive parking (if you drive). Food is great but costly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a need to prevent further silo mentality amongst the different departments. More team building exercises can be held to build up stronger interpersonal relationships.

    I have been working at Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and job security. Lots of opportunities for training. Great environment to work in, almost everyone helps each other.

    Cons

    This is apparently one of the less hectic ministries but don't expect work any short of challenging. Information policies are still pretty hard to digest and sometimes there's no coordination between the departments. Be prepared for long hours (working past 8pm is normal) especially if major events like parliament, media festivals etc are around the corner.

    Keep an open mind
    Frank and honest two way communications will go a long way in building up a work culture that employees will enjoy
