          I have been working at Monetary Authority of Singapore full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Nobody will contact you while on leave

          Cons

          Impression management in front of bosses is important than actual work done. Appraisal could be more transparent.

          Advice to Management

          Improve on the typical civil servant mindset. Injection of private sector staff may not help when not all executive level staff are genuinely supportive.
