      Meaningful but stressful

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You get to meet lots of people and do meaningful work for the community. Decent salary, after 3 years, my salary is 4.1k after CPF. Turnover rate is fast because of poor work life balance, but this also means you promote fast.

      Cons

      No work-life balance, a lot of admin from HQ and CDC side. Volunteers generally only help on the day of event, everything else is done by you so the workload and stress can be quite bad. Rollout of initiatives sudden (they will literally tell you they will launch it next month and give you 2-3 hr training this week) and delayed (all the fanfare, but ended up being deployed late and volunteers start questioning you), GFAST and GEMS II, I'm looking at you.

      Long Hours and Limited Promotion Opportunities

      Jul 12, 2021 - Constituency Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. Changing events/initiatives makes it fun and less mundane. 2. Not a desk bound job.

      Cons

      1. Events are run by volunteers, who are most of the time available only after their work hours. So you will find yourself OT-ing after your work hours in order to plan for the events with them or have meetings. Eats into time with loved ones and yourself. 2. Work on weekends too, which means possibly giving up social activities with friends and loved ones. 2. Limited promotion opportunities as slots are few and fixed, unlike private companies that grow and expand. Many employees choose this as their first and last job too, which means those positions will get locked up. 3. Minimum 3 years of experience before allowed to promote or transfer across or within departments.

      Pros

      Pay wise is quite good. Environment depends on the CO u posted to. If you posted to CO that is more flexible you are lucky.

      Cons

      Long working hours. Especially if there are big event or national project. If boss good, your working environment will be good too.

      Pros

      Stable government job. Yearly increment and if you work hard enough, you can get up to 4 bonus a year.

      Cons

      Always short of manpower and you will always feel like you are underpaid. Dealing with difficult Grassroots leaders/volunteers and unreasonable residents. Can really affect your mental health if you take it to heart.
