    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Singapore Polytechnic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generous in staff training and development

    Cons

    Heavy workload, no work/life balance, management told the people it is their choice if they want work/life balance and they respect their choice, management play politic, management don't trust people to do their jobs, management don't walk the talk

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing politic and walk the talk.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Singapore Polytechnic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible Working Hours (By flexible I mean you can choose to begin between 730am to 9am) Great campus with good facilities (about 6 to 8 food courts and places to eat, a well-curated library, vibrant environment) The train station is connected to engineering blocks (convenient)

    Cons

    To excel or be noticed, be prepared to bring work home and burn weekends Colleagues (both in and across departments) tend to ignore phone calls Very slow paced compared to private sector Protocol / SOPs are not clearly written / referenced. This leads to problems like messiness Too many meetings

    Advice to Management

    Team building is great but the management must prep for and be concerned with raising productivity and efficiency. Should practise zero tolerance for insubordination and do away with seniority or ageism (i.e. can't fire someone because they're old)
