    I worked at Singapore General Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance for non medical staff. no politics in my department.

    Cons

    Medical professionals' career advancement is explicitly outlined, whereas allied health and support staff are not. some of them have been stuck at the same position for 5 years. extremely slow career (if there is even) progression. low pay compared to other industries for non medical staff.

    Advice to Management

    Hospitals do not consists of only doctors and surgeons. Treat all staff with the same level of care and concern. Higher management are like a little closed group who does not understand the slightest challenges they are creating with their establishment of beuractatic rules and such.Please stay true to your motto: "Patients, At The Heart of All We Do"
