Changi General Hospital

Fulfilled and satisfying

This hospital is a caring hospital that not only provides care to patients but care about the employees who work there. Every year you have employees' survey about the hospital to allow employees to voice their concerns.Recently, they provided a new course called grievances handling for employees to participate to learn about employees' right and channels available to voice their concerns be it big or small. Oh yes, there are gymn and badminton courts for employees to flex their muscles. F&B discounts for employees.

Pros

Freebies from company during circuit breaker (CB)period, F&B discount, Hero benefits (pandemic time)

Cons

Due to social management measurements, only designated entrance and exit are available, Need to sanitise your hands frequently in order to reduce risk of getting infections, Need to handle infectious samples

Fast paced and stressful especially during COVID pandemic

Can be stressful when manpower is tight and patient load is high. Generally senior colleagues will guide you if you need help. Only issue is the lack of manpower which means more work per person.

Pros

Good benefits like bonus and welfare Nice colleagues and bosses

Cons

5.5 work days, rude patients

great place to work especially for nurses coming from out of Singapore and if you are looking for professional growth

I have worked with this company for 6 years and only left due to reason that I have to immigrate to United States if not I would have stayed for longer. CGH have taught me a great deal especially in my line of job, it provided me training, supervision, guidance and all necessary equipment I needed and my co-workers in developing our skill and making it proficient. After working with CGH I am more confident with my knowledge and skills as Nurse that I will be able to help address my patient's and community needs more effectively. Also not failing to speak off is the interpersonal relationship that I have built with my managers and co-workers during those years, they have become my strength and friends during those years and I am deeply in great debt with this company having trusted me this opportunity that I will cherish for years to come.

Pros

performance bonus twice a year, salary increase every contract renewal, Christmas bonuses, paid leaves, separation pay, free clinic visit and medication and also during accreditation time they gave bonuses, paid trainings, free lunches or buffets on so many occasions and seminar/training days.

Cons

Short breaks when really busy, under staffed at times, not really equal patient ratio at times

Not a recommended place to work

There's much negativity in the office culture. Management is not as engaging and the minus ones are not even suitable to be in management roles. A lot of office politics and bureaucracy that results in work being inefficient and not meaningful. Definitely not a place to work and think of career advancement.

Pros

Decent benefits

Cons

Toxic culture, management not engaging and too much inefficiency

advancement in nursing

very pro active in advancement in nursing career. The patient ratio to nurse is a bit overwhelming. Buut if you are really passionate about being a nurse and the sacrifice you make for your family it will be a good area to learn.

Good place to work

Company-wide policies such as benefits, bonuses, different type of leaves and exercise, team-building stuffs are pretty good as per any big organisation. Culture generally amicable. Processes generally bureaucratic but not as much as actual govt org, There are many sub-cultures even within 1 department as it can be as huge as a SME. Actual culture depends on team lead, so people who does the interview may be the ones who set the 'culture' in the team. Most management are trying hard to do employee engagement, of course there will be some that just let time pass by.

Patience are top priority

It was tiring as we are the front-line of Healthcare. Our image really play apart in making patients having pleasant and smooth journey throughout their visit to the doctor. Therefore, serving right with smile and patience is very important.

Pros

Free lunches during some events

Cons

Long day of standing and attending to patient's enquiries
