    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Temasek Polytechnic full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Colleagues are nice and some work life balance

    Cons

    Many changes from MOE and PCEO not in the benefit of staff nor students. Errors made in policies affecting cohorts of students and yet staff are told it's ok and that we will tweak the system. To get a promotion, you need to take on many extra projects and committee work and maintain a minimum 5/6 or 6/7 rating to even be considered for promotion - subject to your boss putting you up for it. Following which you are ranked institution wide across other schools to see if you deserve it.

    I have been working at Temasek Polytechnic for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Telecommuting for 12 days a yr. Management are generally understanding to family commitments.

    Cons

    There are many people who stayed there for very very long. However, due to the legacy of the old system, people in the same scheme gets promoted at every fixed interval without any change in job scope and capabilities. There are many old staff getting high pay but doing simple admin work. If you are a young graduate, you will feel ridiculed by the system as people who are doing simple data entry has the same designation and pay grade as you.

    Pros

    Work life balance is possible with the benefits and the annual leave. The workplace culture is nice, with one of the nicest colleagues. The most enjoyable part will be the interactions with the students and watching them grow. There are many self improvement opportunities, and bonding session. There's the beautiful view of the bedok reservoir. TP has many wonderful staff that work with the limited resources available to make the best of it.

    Cons

    Limited resource/budget, management. Health benefits are not as competitive as private industry There is a change in the career track and there will be some limitations to your career growth. The level of the education sometimes are being restricted by the senior colleagues who have not keep upwith the progress of technology. Colleagues that lacks industry experience are running the course programs and modules. The lack of industry touch makes the module misaligned with the purpose of the subject and relevance to industry. Highly recommend more industry attachment for lecturers to keep abreast with the economy and technologies, getting out of comfort zone for career growth.
