      Positive Outlook

      I have been working at Ministry of Manpower full-time

      Pros

      Protected by Laws and Acts

      Cons

      There is a Deputy Director that believes that leave is not an entitlement. Even believes that medical cert can be bought. Expects people to work even during 4 months of leave., if not, you get it bad on your first day back at work.

      Advice to Management

      Pls listen to working level employees and look out for the high staff turnover. There is a reason behind things.
