      Current Employee, more than 3 years

      Meaningful but stressful

      Aug 30, 2021 - Constituency Manager

      CEO Approval
      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.

      Not a good place for growth

      Aug 1, 2021 - Constituency Management Executive in Singapore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Fun and meaningly events that creates good memories, good benefits

      Cons

      No work-life balance and competitive colleagues that tries to sabotage you when you have different management roles. Hard to grow further if you do not have qualifications. Volunteers often have that 'you need me' attitude and makes it hard for people to work with them. Good if you're looking for a retirement job but don't expect more if you're looking for career advancement

      Pros

      I'm in one of the pillar, got to say its a great learning progress and gain lots of network with many people around.

      Cons

      the Work-life balance is quite bad, and expect the workload to be coming non-stop. However, it's a good place to be for your first job.

      Pros

      Warm & friendly environment. Work life balance.

      Cons

      Staff are constantly busy with their tasks, which means there is little time to mentor the interns. Could serve as an opportunity for those who are able to cope with the learning curve & adapt on the job.
