    Pros

    Statutory board. Follows the public sector bonuses. Work-life balance.

    As with some branches of the public sectors, there are old-timers who have been working for xx number of years. They are more resistant to changes and have certain habits that may be undesirable.

    I have been working at Singapore Polytechnic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The teaching and engagement with student during lessons are the best experience, some of the student bond with the lecturers and came back to visit time to time for chat. Seeing the teaching helps the students achieve success after graduation brings a lot of great joy of being a mentor. The time is also much more flexible for spending with family compare to working in corporation. You also can claim the training programs that you took to improve your traits outside the school so you can continue improving your skill set.

    Cons

    Politic, Politic, Politic! It's actually very surprising to find that politic in the education institution is much more intense than working in corporation. There are a lot of people here (who can't teach) playing politic to achieve what they want by hurting others (who can teach). Situation also doesn't help by senior management being favoritism to their own people, so career prospect is greatly blocked. They would prefer people who contribute more to Administration works (Another surprise!) than the actual teaching work itself, so a lot of people hated the environment and left eventually because of the above reasons.
