    I have been working at Singapore Polytechnic

    Pros

    You enjoy Public Service benefits and the stability from having a Public Service job. Generally good work-life-balance.

    Cons

    Career progression is slow. You have to be patient. Impossible to get promotions in consecutive years regardless of how capable you are - something that may be possible in the corporate world.

    Advice to Management

    Please re-look the way that staff are appraised and more importantly, to do away with the bell-curve. When you have a team of top performers working together, the bell-curve only serves to drive staff out rather than motivate them to do better.

    I have been working at Singapore Polytechnic full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Statutory board. Follows the public sector bonuses. Work-life balance.

    Cons

    As with some branches of the public sectors, there are old-timers who have been working for xx number of years. They are more resistant to changes and have certain habits that may be undesirable.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what the staff are doing. Being able to work for many years doing the same thing may not mean that the work is good.
