    Pros

    Good wellness program, they have a whole hospital! Will not collapse. Too big to fail.

    Cons

    Ignores anyone who is not in research or academic. PMEs will do well to avoid this employer. They don't promote internally and loves to hire externally for higher positions. Bad increment way below market rate. Bonus, what bonus? Bad politics among PMEs due to extreme low resource for salary packages (increments and bonus). It becomes the last man standing show for that small chicken pie at the end of the road after starving you for a year. Constantly asks you to do more but refuses to promise what they will give in return for extra performance. HR will not respond directly to questions. Gives vague replies. Redirects back to your management who referred you to HR "policies" and "budgeting" to begin with.

    Advice to Management

    Why? They don't listen anyway!

    Pros

    The best education place in Singapore and showed its quality on global level. It provides accreditation.

    Cons

    You still feel the regulations of Asian work culture, and it is an education based company at the end.

    Pros

    Working with my colleagues makes life easier when a team spirited approach is taken. Faculty brings up the value of the organisation.

    Cons

    Admin processes still need more work. Recognition of personal efforts to improve oneself (i.e. further studies) should be acknowledged and worked upon.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten audits on senior management staff in departments. Focus on leadership training for potential and motivated staff before they develop the intention to leave.
