    I have been working at Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore full-time

    Pros

    Nice work environment in airport, plenty of choices during lunchtime, meaningful work. My division's work gains respect and crebility in the industry. Work-life balance depends on what job you do. Improved HR. Good compensation compared to other government agencies. Great colleagues who work like a big family together, lots of old timers who stayed with company for many years. There is even an airport recreation... club for staff.

    Cons

    While CEO is pushing for innovation, some leaders are conservative and resist change, creating roadblocks to new ideas. Offices are pretty run down, compared to other places I have interviewed. If you want a swanky workplace, go CAG. IT is slow, with many restrictions. Approvals esp procurement can take a long time which frustrates employees.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and empower your staff more, cut down layers of approvals.
