Featured Review

Member of Technical Staff

I worked at DSO National Laboratories for more than a year

Pros

Great working hours and thorough review process. Employees get to decide what 8 or 9-hour span of the day they prefer to work during, and are not required to adhere to a fixed 8am-5pm schedule.... Each employee typically work on a few different projects every year. These different projects are often managed by different project leads (PLs). During the yearly performance reviews, these different PLs would convene and rate the performance of an individual. Performance reviews are carried out by multiple supervisors, and everyone is ranked based on collective inputs of the whole management team. As such, this allows John and Peter to be compared on a somewhat similar scale even though they have not been on the same team together.

Cons

Engineering and Applied science oriented, and might not be suited for people who are more focused on curiosity-driven research.

Current Employee - Senior Manager

I have been working at Building & Construction Authority full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

good staff benefits, salary at ok level. scholars and hi pots will take much of the ECAs, secy and committees work, routine work is manageable.

Cons

top heavy structure, weak middle management layer, snakes can get by and promote easily.

Advice to Management

be more selective on who you hire and promote. not everyone who takes on work blindly and not all yes men are good dept heads
