How is management perceived at Singapore University of Social Sciences?

Pros

Good benefits Collaborative workplace Friendly bunch of colleagues Sufficient staff bonding activities to encourage colleagues to mingle

Cons

Opportunities for progression and learning can be limited if you have a weak manager who is simply a manager instead of a mentor, and will not look out for you. There is always this talk about inculcating an open culture, but the majority of the senior management staff are a traditional bunch. The ground staff can be innovative and open to giving feedbacks, but are the management willing to listen?

Advice to Management

The HR policies can be better in terms of: - improved flexibility for working parents - targeted learning and training - offering self-run interest groups and ground-up initiatives for staff bonding

What is the company culture like at Singapore University of Social Sciences?

Pros

- There is a collaborative culture among colleagues, the hierarchy is generally flat, and decision-making is faster than at other AUs. - The university has also provided support for adult education for the past 15 years (partly as a private entity, UNISIM) when this segment was overlooked. - Senior leadership walks the talk, and supports staff continued education aspiration

Cons

- As this is an older institution, it is necessary for new hires to build rapport and earn trust. - Also had to ask a lot of questions to senior members (from officers to directors) - As with older organizations, new hires naturally have a steeper learning curve on internal processes and systems.

Advice to Management

Maintain the collaborative work culture, and continue in the mission to support over-looked segments from different education pathways.

- There is a collaborative culture among colleagues, the hierarchy is generally flat, and decision-making is faster than at other AUs.
