    Current Contractor - Mso in Singapore

    I have been working at Singapore Polytechnic for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay quite good with better benefits compared to private sectors. Flexible working hours to choose from. From 730am onwards to 8.30 or 9am.

    Cons

    Politics. Must know how to handle the ties between you and your colleagues. Stressful work with almost no work life balance. might have to Ot everyday/bring work home. Support officer trained to do officer job if insufficient headcount In the dept. many newly hired youngsters left most probably not used to the work environment/ management. It doesn't take hard work to gain promotion it takes whether if your management appreciate your effort/hard work and if he/she thinks if you deserves it. If you lie low profile even if you work really hard, it is of no use unless you can high profilely show them what you are being capable of.

    Advice to Management

    Too much changes to management, policies and regulations all year round. The other schools and departments are very confused to the new changes as well.

    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.
