    I worked at Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of friendly people. Very PR job with lots of people around you. Depending on the department you are working at you may get to dress down (i.e. not a requirement for formal attire everyday)

    Cons

    Mundane, office job with lots of paper work. After all, you are dealing with tax issues. Therefore everything that you do becomes really repetitive after a while.

    Advice to Management

    none

    There isn't that much outside of work interaction with the permanent staff. Most of the time, the perm staff would have lunch with other perm staff. Us interns usually lunch with each other.
