      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Land Transport Authority full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      The annual civil package is good.

      Cons

      Very bad culture in one of the admin groups. Toxic management who cannot accept people with differing opinions to them. Own fave more important than developing employees. Very poor leadership. I worry for the future of Singapore.

      Advice to Management

      Don't sit in your ivory tower and bark instructions and force your opinions through. When you talk, think of the effect your words have on your credibility.
