      The grass is indeed greener on the other side !

      Pros

      Work-life balance. Even if you don't get your work completed on time, you can still leave the office on time. A lot of workshops and seminars that staff could attend. Some divisions do pretty meaningful work like protecting nature reserves, regulation of green buffers and securing green spaces in the urban city, and redevelopment of urban green spaces. Those projects could sometimes be fun and satisfying! Organization allows some staff to work from home.

      Cons

      1. Cross-divisional cooperation is hard. 2. Staff in some divisions do not get recognition for a job well done. 3. Extremely bureaucratic, typical of traditional organizations 4. Some staff are too comfortable; poor prospects for ambitious officers

      Pros

      Possible exposure to nature. Can learn more about flora and fauna

      Cons

      Poor work life balance. Management tries to push lofty things like active hour for work life balance but it doesn’t happen on the ground. Working till late night. Red tape and bureaucracy, with bosses who are not aware of what/how implementation is like.

      Pros

      Culture is great and family-friendly, people who work in the organisation tend to have similar interests, such as a love for outdoors and wildlife. Good mix of desk-bound tasks and being outdoors in parks depending on role.

      Cons

      You often get "volunteered" for organisation-wide events and projects, such as during weekends on certain festivals, or safe-distance duty for Covid.
