    I have been working at Public Utilities Board full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    the benefits are on par with most companies out there. even better if you are a married personnel as you will be given extra leave to take care of your children.

    Cons

    the age of the workforce there are generally very old. so the corporate culture lacks vibrancy and youthfulness. there were many semi-retired staff who contribute much lesser than the younger employees as age have catches up on them and they felt that they are nearing retirement as could slacken off.

    Pros

    Despite the occasional overtime, organisation promotes good work life balance! People are generally friendly and helpful. Pay is also competitive with market

    Cons

    Like any government sector job, there is a certain level of bureaucracy. Stable but slow progression. Nonetheless, still a great place to work at.

    Pros

    Stability, decent salary with good benefits and work-life balance. Colleagues are generally nice.

    Cons

    Progression is extremely poor. Appraisal seems to be more focus on seniority and "taking turns" rather than merit. Only scholars will have a meaningful career. Diploma holders undertaking degree seeking to be emplaced on graduate scheme is competitive and even if emplaced, plays 2nd fiddle to graduate entry engineers.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities to non-graduates and mid career upgraders seeking emplacement.

    Good Work Life balance

    relatively flexible working hrs

    Cons

    Not much learning of Engineering skills, more of project management

    Narrow work scope and could be quite boring if stay in a position for too long
    Only so called "Scholars" will be given more opportunities

    Job rotation
