Colleagues are nice, management ok only

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working hours acceptable, starting from 8:30 - 5:30pm and one Saturday every 4 weeks. Management judge your performance by how multitasking you’re able to, but not how skilful and concentrating you’re in your job.

Relaxed, slow paced

It's a ideal place for those who want stable income and work life balance. But for people who wants to earn more in their young time, better jump to another company as this job has no career growth, progression and you're doing the same thing over and over again.As a Senior Therapy Assistant, my pay is ok, can cover the rent and all. But to earn more you need a competitive job in a fast paced environment. Even if you work for 5 years 10 years, you have zero opportunity to rise. For example: sales rep can become manager, a waiter can become admin officer, an admin staff can become HR. A technician can become engineer, an assistant social media staff can become designer eventually. But as a therapy assistant, your career path is Therapy assistant -> Senior Therapy Assistant -> principal therapy assistantno more. And if you're looking to become principal therapy assistant, forget it, you need at least 6 to 10 years experience to become a principal therapy assistant and you need to execute at least one project that's benefit to our hospital and the chances of getting approved to execute a project in my hospital is somewhat near to zero percent. If you're looking for career change, it can be struggling and difficult for you to jump as you're working in healthcare industry. So think twice before you ended up like me.Benefits are: various bonuses, aws, performance bonus, 13 month, annual leaves, and nice colleagues. You working in a hospital which means your job is very secure as hospital is an important asset in Singapore. You don't need to hit sales target, number of patient - 

Pros

Work life balance (not sure can enjoy life as pay is low and inflation rate is high).

Cons

If you looking for career growth.This is not the right place. For retirement/passion: yes.

very productive workplace

Everyday i faced a very challenging role as a staff nurse , do a lot of responsibilities including paper works. I learned so many things here specially how to deal with toxic event and handle a hard situation properly and to work with minimal supervision. The management are fairly good. The best part of my career life was every time i saw my patient able to go home with no aches and pain.

Pros

meal allowance

Cons

long hours of work

Goal oriented and jolly people, happy workplace

Its a good place. Beautiful and happy people. Good co-workers. Easy to cope up with the environment. Well oriented on task, protocols and standards. Its a very challenging job for me as we deals with heavy work loads. But so far still can handle. What i enjoy the most is that the friendship of each person wether it is nurses or patients. I enjoyed being part of the company even if in the short period of time. I learned the true value of my work that its not only work itself but being with other people helping, sharing and caring with passion and love.

unfair management

typical day at work is showering patients. i have learned to be independent and at the same time a team player, and nursing is working in a team. The hardest part of the job is when you are doing what you can to provide care to patient but not appreciated. the most enjoyable part of the job is when staff are enough so you could do your work smoothly

Pros

team building

Cons

language barrier

Best work culture

As in any community hospital, the routine of any Staff Nurse consist of assessing and monitoring patient's conditions, giving and administering medications, following doctor's rounds and carrying out orders, wound dressings, collaborate with the therapists in the rehabilitation care of patients. Years had past, almost all my ex-colleagues and superiors in AMKH had left that place for various reasons. So, I am commenting about my past working relationship at AMKH. From AMKH, I learnt a lot that helps me in my nursing experience. There is a strong learning culture there. The matrons and Nursing Officers have the perfect balance that any nurse would hope to work for. On one hand they are firm but on the other hand, they are not people who condemn others. They are just and result oriented which I like. My superiors are like "parents" and "elder siblings" to me. Whenever, I made mistakes, they have the patience to guide me after rebuking me. That is what I like, there is a world of difference being corrected by care; and being disciplined with condemnation. There is a strong family-like culture which not many people can discerned. My colleagues are cooperative and some of them become my lifelong friends. I worked there for 12 and a half years and I rarely heard of gossips, it is amazing in a large workplace. By the way, don't get me wrong, all of us have "spikes like porcupines", we are not saints. But overall, somehow I got along well with everyone there. To share a silly thought, during my employment in AMKH, I dreamt of contributing to - 

Pros

Great work culture and reasonable good salary.

Cons

Do not underestimate the workload, workload can be very hectic at times.
