Great Experience with Great People

Public Service Division Intern (Current Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I have been working at Public Service Division Singapore as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe people are very friendly, and location is pretty good as well. Enriching experience within the public sector, and you get to interact with other agencies quite a bit as well.

ConsNot very much to say here other than the fact that a lot of the initiatives and projects usually don't yield short term results, but that is pretty standard across most public sector policy-focussed agencies.

Friendly workplace

Human Resources Executive (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at Public Service Division Singapore full-time for less than a year

ProsPeople are nice. There are pro-family initiatives. Activities/events happening on a frequent basis to make the workplace more fun. Open working environment, encourages collaborations between departments

ConsLong meetings. Need to have good writing skills. Quite a bit of ding-donging --> work gets dragged on. It may be okay for someone who wants to have a stable working environment. But for someone who wants to move up the ladder, it is not a suitable place.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake meetings fast and to-the-point

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The ability to speak up on any subject at meetings to speak fluff is.
They are not respected by the ministries they serve
