    I worked at Ministry of Manpower as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Blue Sky Friday once every month
    Team building and other activities are encouraged
    Adequately talented people to work with

    If you are looking for stable career with well-defined career path, family friendly workplace and does not mind a bit of red tapes, then this is the place for you. There is day care center right close to the building for those with children. People are generally friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Too many red tapes ( installation of new program on machines take along time to approved etc )
    Staff in department that I worked are overloaded with work. need more headcounts

    Former Employee - Inbound Officer in Singapore (Singapore)
    Former Employee - Inbound Officer in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at Ministry of Manpower part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Slack admin job, time to engage in one's own leisure activities during work hours e.g. watching drama, reading

    Cons

    some co-workers are lowly educated and speak with vulgarities and in a uncivilized manner.
    culture in the admin office is slack, so everyone slacks and gets minimum work done (to meet quota of the day), thus it is a waste of sg's resources

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be a good example to subordinates and please correct the culture

    Pros

    Practically oriented ,exposing one to real field of work or industrial standards

    Cons

    Challenges due to collaboration with some standards companies to match with the training

    They should find a way to link industries direct to the ministry for effective and current level of technology

    Pros

    Flexible in work-life schedules, stable pay and benefits, flat hierarchy, less bureaucratic than most Ministries, friendly working environment and nice people. Job satisfaction derived in helping people and country.

    Cons

    Career progression is fixed and may take years to be promoted even for good performer. Salary while good, is still not as well paying as private sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flat hierarchy, willing to listen to staff's advice, although they hold final decision.
