    I have been working at Ngee Ann Polytechnic full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work as the working environment is conducive and lively, colleagues are helpful and friendly. It focus on people development too.

    Cons

    It could be stressful at times. To provide better quality of service, one needs to sacrifice some weekends and family time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive a balance between work and life.

    I worked at Ngee Ann Polytechnic full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I didn't have to deal with all the paperwork that most of the regular staff does.
    Decent time off - it used to be many more days, but is now 21 days.
    Great community! They are so kind and welcoming.

    Cons

    They expect you to be at your cubicle most of the time.
    They expect a large time commitment in coaching or leading extracurricular activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope that the management can continue the focus on the students. It seems like the best lecturers end up going to more administrative roles and worse lectures continue teaching. I wish that the best lecturers continued to teach instead.

    Pros

    NP send their employee to courses.

    Cons

    NP only offers MSO grade 7 for its own diploma, which is lower than 'A' Level holder. But leaving employee must pay back the cost of the courses for the remaining periods to NP.

    Pros

    Great meaning, colleagues are absolutely fabulously good people, super fun interacting with the students, great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not as well-paying, may be a bit stagnating in terms of climbing the career ladder. 60% is spent lecturing/doing academic work, the other 40% is doing administrative work like planning staff / student activities, marking scripts etc.

    Pros

    Bonuses are good even if you only meet requirements for your job, because even meeting requirements here is very hard.

    Very bad work/life balance. You are expected to be 100% devoted to the job. Say goodbye to family life.
