    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

    Pros

    Colleagues and managers are all very forth coming and willing to help. It's like a mini family here and I really enjoy my stay there
