      Terrible Management - Singapore/Local TV News

      12 Jun 2021 - Reporter in Singapore

      Pros

      You get to learn current affairs and news, build up your general knowledge, and most significantly -- You learn what a terrible management is and why it's so important!

      Cons

      - Terrible management after a new deputy chief editor came in from the Straits Times - He had caused a lot of conflict - many editors and tv journalists have left due to his poor EQ, leadership skills and incompetency. - He does not understand how TV works and will never fit in. - He was poached by higher management to value-add in TV news - didn't work and will never work. - He has tried flexing his powers by trying to stir up the local news desk with his new leadership and management plans -- nobody in the team likes it. - He has been trying to overthrow the chief editor and their conflicts have severely impacted downstream... but they remain oblivious. - Super high turnover rate and they're going to tell you the job requires extreme resilience and grit.. but really it is just the despicable culture. I wished Mediacorp HR would actually be competent for once, stop turning a blind eye and the team will not lose great talents (as it has been over the past 1/2 year). If you're thinking of joining the local news desk, wait till the deputy chief ed leaves.

      Pros

      Obviously, this is the only place in SG that truly dedicates itself to local broadcast media. There is no better place to start your career in this area to learn the ropes about the industry.

      Cons

      Missed the boat in keeping up with times, and is now playing catch-up. Management has much to do in terms of charting the direction for the future. Should also focus building culture that cultivates a sense of belonging for newcomers.

      Pros

      Stability and job security. Company tries not to lay off people when times are bad. Good projects and learning opportunities.

      Cons

      6 days/ week, irregular shift hours. Workaholic supervisor who constantly tells you work first, play later. High turnover rate but HR doesn't seem to be concerned. Not much career prospect. Low pay in terms of market rate. Heaps of politics across all departments.
