Bureaucratic and Top-down management style

Processes usually not optimized and double effort is imminent. Management not open for improving processes.Workplace politics are growing fast. Usually happened within your own team. If you just want to humbly get your work done, probably you are not able to survive for long.

Conflicts always with fellow colleagues as mostly they don’t know the basic procedures as required.

No future and advancement. Many are just doing to kill time and no job’s satisfaction. No skills required and just wasting golden time. This hob is meant for retiree

Fun, but with the right people

Having worked through the pandemic as a swab assistant, it's been tiring but at the end of the day, the purpose of the job was to contribute to the country in what small way i could. Helps to have supportive friends alongside you.

A stepping stone

The good thing is I managed to make friends with some good and positive mindset people.Learn new skills and interactive. Need to be careful of some ppl in management who plays favouritism and kept the employees who have attitude problems of gossiping, spreading bad rumours of teammates and the managers plays sides with those ppl.

Productive and fun workplace

Perhaps to screen the interviewees more as mostly the younger generation have no EQ or are impatient twds clients. Could have been more tactful handling clients and b more mature at work.

Workplace location

Roving operation was fun and was well taken care of fellow colleagues in the ops. Permanent place was given far away from current staying location. That's where has difficulties. Given multiple request to change my location.. but too bad was not given and my contract ends.. overall missed working with HPB.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Reasonable hours
Was this review helpful?

meaningful job but too much office politics at the Manager's level above

A workday starts off early at 7am and ends by 5pm plus, its a meaning job towards a national cause but too much insecurity coming into the mid-2021 due to downsizing of the Swab-ops thus indirectly resulting at politicking among managers and ADs level in Swab Ops. Swab Ops HR doesn't have a fix set of principles in hiring or managing HR matters

Pros

National cause and good meals provided

Cons

long hours and too much uncertainty by higher management and HR
Was this review helpful?

Result oriented

Result matters, unless there is no result then process will be considered for effort put in. Liberty and power are enforced, so one has to plan and schedule to achieve the target. Help or advise can be sort if issues o problems are encountered.

Pros

Free to express

Cons

No limit

Constantly learning and productive

Projects are plenty hence it's a very busy company. You can get overwhelmed with the tasks. As an intern, they are plenty of things to learn about. Management includes you in meetings and considers your feedback or opinions. Workplace culture generally is good with everyone being nice, helpful and welcoming.

Pros

Freedom to express opinions and feedback as an intern

Cons

Tasks can get too overwhelmed.
