    I worked at KK Women's and Children's Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great colleagues who are willing to teach, great benefits and bonus. pay is decent. company really cares about welfare - free breakfast for all on Monday, the fact that this place has a comfortable staff lounge and a nap room, there's events and activities to bond different departments together. people from higher management are not rude to ground staff. in general, the organisation is not understaffed so there's a fair distribution of workload.

    Cons

    career advancement will take a very long time, department is too concerned with KPI that they always underplay staff's achievements.
