    I have been working at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A good average job for a stable income earner. The culture and environment is pleasant.

    Cons

    Very slowmo career progression and potential growth. Past achievements & contributions to the department are easily forgotten by supervisors. Leadership is very weak and no support for admin staff if things went wrong or when given the autonomy to be decision-makers. Keep blaming the surroundings instead of realising their mistakes and knowledge is not up-to-date. Even doubted the integrity of staff commitments to family. No direction for 5 years projection and KPI is not clear. I believe different department differs but not where I am situated in.

    Advice to Management

    Let the peers evaluate the Managers/ Asst managers. There are alot of lapses in between process and alot of pep talks but empty words. Overall, this can be improved and staff do look up to management for guidance.

    Pros

    Very nice environment. Every day you are not coming to a hospital but a garden. All my colleagues are very nice and very helpful

    Cons

    Departments should work more closely with each other and share what they are doing with others. Hence we can have more collaboration in future.

    Advice to Management

    Organize more workshops for current employees to improve their skills. Management should have more communications with ground level staff
