    I have been working at Ministry of Manpower full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Felxibility
    Many departments to move around
    People are nice

    Cons

    Senior management had politics that somehow trickles down to others under them.
    Changes take forever to implement.

    Pros

    Chance to interact with many fellow interns from the other universities

    Cons

    Job scope was very one-dimensional and hardly related to analysis of the primary data collected

    Advice to Management

    Training provided could be shortened or self-initiated by interns (instead of organising "lecture" styled briefings)

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Helpful permanent staff, a lot of friendly people. My supervisors were very kind and understood troubles I had. They let me take some unpaid leave.

    Cons

    A lot of politics, unfortunately. I was never in full face of it but it was always there for the permanent staff and it affected them bad.
