    Horrible place to work at

    Jul 27, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Nothing good to say. Director of the office turned this experience negative for me. Because of the horrible treatment, I chose to leave the company.

    Cons

    I had the worst experience working in this office with the current director. An awful and toxic work environment where you are constantly hearing verbal abuses shouted at the employees. No care whatsoever for our physical and mental well-being. Was completely appalled and disgusted by the directors unjustified, and honestly just plain mean, attitude towards everyone.

    No growth, No prospect, No increment, Nothing

    Pros

    Apart from being able to tell others that you're "working for the government" and some form of work life balance. Nothing else noteworthy.

    Cons

    Some colleagues (especially those who have been in the company for many years) are plain bullies. Pushing work and redelegating their work to the newer colleagues with lame excuses. Delegation of work is unfair. However the Director has no interest at all (especially those that are near the end of their terms. If the director is a bully or plain apathetic, you just have to wait our his/her term. And a new tyrant will be shipped in with new rules, regulations and procedures. Every 5 years is a new set of process. If they are new to office, they are fired up introducing additional paperwork. At times when questioned, they display no guts to stick by their word and change their instructions depending on mood or circumstances. Pay increment is discretionary and dependent on the Director. If he/she bothers to put up the paperwork to fight for the local staff. If not it'll just be stagnant pay.
