Fun and collaborative workplace

Overall, it's a genuinely nice place to develop your career. Was surrounded by a bunch of smart and friendly colleagues, I learnt a lot from them. Average age in Govtech is lower than other gov agencies. Vibrant and energetic working culture.

Cool and fun place to work in (if you are posted to HQ)

There is no air or barrier from top management, mid level Managers and working group staffs. Even contract workers are treated as part of their own, so its really a one "Gigantic, Fun and Happening" family. Freeflow of food and drinks supplies available all the time. Everybody engages with any other divisions, very collaborative work culture. Also, they encouraged and incentivize all employees to continue upgrade and upskill, staying relevant to time.

Pros

Freeflow of food, drinks, time-offs, upskill

Cons

Long hours

Demanding culture and bad resource management

Lack of resource overview and demand from higher management without considering the workforce strength is major issue in the organisation. Learning curve is extremely steep for new comer.

Not for someone that is transiting from private sector

Having a very top down approach means that there is typically decisions that doesn't make sense and may cause double effort in the course of work. Iron rice bowl is definitely helpful in the current situation.

Exciting and innovative

The internship at GovTech was exciting and full of opportunities. The hardest part of the job was perhaps trying to figure out where to contribute because of the myriad of projects available. The workplace culture was acceptable, the nature of the industry is such that bureaucracy is evident.
