    I worked at Management Development Institute of Singapore

    Pros

    Good Canteen and affordable for staffs and student. Colleagues were very helpful but beyond stressed.

    Chaotic workload, understaffed due to revolving door of runners. Badly managed by an indochinese dictatorship. Bonded labour - illegal in N America n Europe ! Growing too quickly without structure.

    I have been working at Management Development Institute of Singapore full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a place can train your endurance well. if you can handle people and work scope, procedures here well. There is no job that you can't handle any more

    Cons

    Long working hours, 6 months to get confirmation, bosses could scold you just because can't reach you after work hours or during weekend. Many unnecessary around the office like: must check attendance; can't wear slippers working within your work space (which is from your desk to the internal toilet); can't eat breakfast after 8:40 (start work hour) but they could hold you at the meeting from 10 am to 2 pm over your...

    Pros

    Good Colleagues Near MRT Free Shuttle Services from Queenstown

    Cons

    Long Working Hours; 8.30pm to 6.30pm! Lunch Hours: 1-2PM. Ridiculous company policies! If you are sick for more than 6 days, your AWS will be pro rated! Seriously they don't care about staffs, all they care is numbers and money.

    Advice to Management

    The entire Management Team need to be replace, otherwise they will forever stuck in their old way of doing things which obviously don't work anymore .

      Pros

      Accessibility and has a regular shuttle service

      Cons

      Very regimental workplace. Rather work in an army camp. Poor upper management and HR. Outrageous company policy that will deduct AWS if MC is more than 5. Long working hours from 8.30 to 6.30. Company that portrays itself as non profit but focuses on profit numbers rather than education quality for students. Poor and old facilities.

      Pros

      Shuttle bus service from mrt station.

      Cons

      - Super bad company culture because of the super terrible management people. Management only communicate with people by scolding and shouting. - No respect to employee. The whole company listen to one person only. The top management people just do all the best to make that one person happy so they can survive. - Poor in problem solving. Management people only know how to push the ball around when facing problems....
