Bad Company Culture

Busy Bees just bought over many centres in Singapore but poorly manages the new centres. Staff from centres who were bought over by Busy Bees are not appreciated and valued. Culture at work is top-down management. Stressful as management is not open to feedback for improvement.


Challenging and fast-paced, able to learn.


Poor Management, Poor Culture, High Stress, Very Low Manpower.

terrible place, lots of backstabbing

Bosses expect you to be on call and ready to answer their queries 24/7 irrespective of public holidays. Fellow colleagues are scheming and waiting to see you fall.


like entering very upper class childcare


super long hours and lots of work

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Fun workplace, requires a lot more team work especially with the class partners.

Healthy environment to work in. Depending on the individual centres, the management have different ways of managing the teachers and setting the culture.


Overall, a fun and loving place to work.


Have to take classes for level partners if they are on leave.

Micro management and stressful

Its all about work. Your boss expects you to bring home your work to do and yet does not provide any tools for you to complete your work in school. Loads of paperwork and all the time was used to conduct lessons and relief classes. Top management will not pay fairly.


Long hours, Micro management, etc

Great CEO, Ok Working Culture, Challenging Work

Inspiring CEO, flat hierarchy that promotes employee engagement. Not too robust HR system where employee performance is not rewarded accordingly. Loved serving the CEO. She provides a lot of challenge and personal growth.

It's all about work only

I have learnt a lot from my team colleagues who were always passionate about making the difference in children's learning and development. Unfortunately the organisation only recognised departments it views as profit driven, as such, professional team's effort to improve quality had not seemed to be recognised, and wellbeings of personnels in the professional team had always been neglected.


Lots of learning opportunities


Heavy workloads

Not conducive

No staff welfare, underpaid for this industry. Racism and biassness amongst staff. No increment after getting certified, treated unfairly although we have our entitlements

What I learnt

One thing you need to know about working here is that, majority of you will have to know how to be independent & must always take your own initiative. Dont wait for them to give you work. You must also be mentally prepared for the workload and stress as well.


No work on weekends

work life balance

In my previous company working as senior account executive, I have lead multiple projects with our team and enhanced the whole billing projects and shorten the process. I was responsible for compiling the company’s POP scheme /monthly subsidy claims. I have lead and perform company internal audit/mandatory leave audit for affected centres, assist in company interim and annual audit of providing required documents/ answering quires to auditors. I have developed effective communication skills and built excellent relationships with internal and external stakeholders.

One of a kind

A typical day at work would be welcoming the students into the center, pacified children that can't bear to let go of their parents. Follow by a daily routine timetable of assembly, activities, lunch, nap time and sending students back to their parents' arms. I had learned classroom management, handle behaviors problems, conduct all types of activities such as Art, gym, culinary, storytelling, music and etc. I worked with a great team. The hardest part of the job is facing behavior challenges. The most enjoyable part of the job is a simple hug from the students and appreciation from parents.


Free lunch, near home


everyday is a challenge

Global mid sized education company

The role requires me to prepare analyse, verify and disseminate critical monthly and yearly financial reports, coupled with budgeting and forecasting responsibilities. I have 3 subordinates, 2 accountants and 1 Account Payables. I have been involved in preparing the documentation for legislative and statutory returns, including income tax and Accounting and Corporate regulatory Authority (ACRA) filing. My team and I maintain the general ledger and financial data to all levels of management and external stakeholders including advice on auditing processes and insurance coverage. I also have experience with mergers and accounting acquisition (IPO) in my previous role as auditor. A key skills I have acquired is the ability to successfully implement and manage new accounting system and procedures. I enjoy the challenge of integrating a new system and working with wider accounting/system team to ensure a smooth and productive workflow. I have a proactive management style with highly developed communication skills. I have frequently been required to manage a team under pressure and enable them to meet strict deadlines.
