  5. "Busy But Fulfilling"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    - Great co-workers, and really approachable supervisors
    - Fair amount of agency and autonomy in the creative process
    - Flexible job scope, opportunities to dip your toes in various divisions
    - Nice environment, the campus at One North is squeaky new; the make-up department in particular has convenient light-up mirrors and adequately accommodating tables
    - Style by Style has great truffle fries, also Wednesday deals

    Cons

    - Somewhat hectic schedule
    - Inconsistent workload, it veers from perpetually empty to seriously-hard-pressed-for-time, but that's what happens when you've project cycles
    - Aside from Style by Style and the food court (which you'll tire of eventually), there's nothing much available by way of sustenance, and the closest mall is a good ten-to-fifteen-minutes walk away

    I have been working at Mediacorp full-time

    Pros

    There are fantastic mentors in the editorial team, and this is important if you're a fresh graduate. They tend to be immediate supervisors rather than the higher-ups.

    Cons

    Unfortunately some of the management-level editorial staff have absolutely no journalism background and don't understand the craft. Worse, some are even parachuted in from civil service.
