    Pros

    Good Learning environment with plenty of courses to attend.

    Pretty rigid when comes to promotion, career progression is uncertain depending on who your boss is. Workload can be too much for average pay. Impact of what you are doing can be very insignificant.

    More collaboration. less politics.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Regular office hours, rarely have to work overtime. Lots of courses to attend to upgrade one self. Stable job.

    Cons

    Low annual Increment. Slow career advancement as they have limited places for promotion in every department annually. Promotion depends on seniority at work. Have to wait for your turn to be promoted. Everything must be done strictly to the books. Politics in my department. Good if the HOD likes you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to every staff, they might have good suggestions to improve workflow. Based promotion on merit, not by politics or seniority. Appreciate the work others (not just doctors) have done.

    Pros

    Relatively pro work life balance

    Cons

    Increment and career advancement is slow. Rigid working environment. Everything has a standard operation protocol and if you deviate from it, you can expect negative response from all levels

    Advice to Management

    Should improve on personnel growth by letting us go for relevant courses. I feel like a robot everyday doing the same things everyday but do not know their real reason.

    Pros

    The organization is established and well-known in its research and clinical services. There are many people you can speak to and learn from their experiences. The staff welfare benefits are abundant.

    Cons

    Career progression and training budget is limited for non-medical staff. Very competitive to get good appraisal outcomes and non-medical staff is appraised compared with other medical staff in the same department.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, and if you get along well with your boss, you can have substantial freedom.

    Cons

    If you are not a clinician, you will always be a 2nd class citizen. Slow rate of progression and doesn't pay as well as others within the industry. To get things done quickly, depends on whom you know, so things could be extremely bureaucratic, or erratic, with lots of 'exceptions'.

    Advice to Management

    Talent Management is an absolute must to bring the entire organization up (including, or especially administration).
