    I have been working at Temasek Polytechnic

    Pros

    The culture for caring with students align with the organizational values.

    Cons

    The manner of work is very hierarchical, too much red tape. If you are young and ambitious in your career, the prospects here are quite bleak unless you are a scholar. No plans for work-life balance. Staff who work overtime are not compensated adequately.

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

    Pros

    - Support for personal development (sponsorship of masters program if you don't mind being bonded) - Friendly and helpful colleagues - Benefits were okay

    Cons

    - omg the amount of red tape and obsession over covering your a** - I personally found the work culture a little too old fashioned - the PCEO - too many rosters (specific to my department) - terribly paranoid about internet security and the IDA app scan, leading to a lot of restrictions on the software/open source ware staff might actually need (a lot of working around the system/looking for loopholes to actually do what you need to do) - legacy system is too ancient

    Pros

    depending on department and boss , people are generally not expected to work overtime esp if you are support staff (ie diploma and below).

    Cons

    like all stat boards, there are red tapes. Benefits are standard, dont expect fancy and creative benefits that are available in some other stat boards. most admin department have rather heavy workload because mof or moe have some outdated student to admin staff ratio and even with the increase in programmes and initiatives in the recent years, HR is still telling us the headcount is frozen as we have hit the hiring limit for admin staff. retired staff are always rehired regardless of productivity this could have contributed to the headcount crisis. Some revamp in HR policies required in order to move forward and increase productivity.

    Stable Job, unlikely to be fired if even if your work is average. Everyone leaves the office on time, good for family orientated person

    Cons

    Too much red-tapes, unable to innovate without going through tons of paper work Some bosses have the mentality of " if it is not broken, why improve it ".
