    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Management Development Institute of Singapore full-time

    Pros

    Zero Pros. Can't think of any.

    Cons

    1. This place has the worst management team. They need to go for Managing 1O1 training. 2. This place has a very high turn over rate. They abused and exploited employees 3. Their modus operandi is A. To hire new staff and slave drive them. B. They are always hiring new batch of new graduates and repeat this cycle. You notice they hired people as fast as they can and make thrm do telesale instead of the role they...

    Advice to Management

    Obviously the lousy managers there can't find job else where so they all ended up working at MDIS. Be professional like USIM and SIM and Keplan. Stop exploiting and milking internation students with hour 3rd rate education.

    Improve annual rewards to higher percentage and be more open

    "Worst Company to Work For"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Singapore
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Management Development Institute of Singapore full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Unrealistic company in terms of expectations, expect every employee to join and create instant impact. Too much internal politics between senior management. Went overseas on business trip but not compensate with any form of time-off. Came back on a early morning flight and expected to report for work on same day itself.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and change

    Pros

    Free shuttle bus from mrt

    Cons

    Super strict with indian dictactor managment. Stingy company, overloaded, understaffed. Staffs run away after a few months probation. They have to recruite many new staffs everyweek. Terrible Management. Messy company. Wolves and snakes everywhere. You cannot trust anyone there. Do not destroy your career by joining the team.

    Advice to Management

    Be generous with your staffs. They need space to breathe then they can work harder.

    Pros

    there is a shuttle bus service from mrt station to the campus

    Cons

    JOIN AT YOUR OWN RISK - HOD is terrible, no leadership skill at all - funny policy (eg. writing report every month to describe how you perform teamwork spirit, more than 5 MC will affect your bonus or increment, tap in & out everyday with face recognition) - probation period for officer or executive level may takes more than 6 months - high turnover - siloed culture and disgruntled management - hierarchical organisation...
