Management is unfair

Underpaid, slow career progression. It will take years for you to get to a higher position. Basically doing the same thing everyday. Some are lucky to get people to teach them well, some are not. You gotta figure alot of things out yourself and the drs will expect you to know everything in the clinic itself and all of the procedures. Good managers will give fair treatments, some are biased and wont care about your wellbeing.


Company dinner, year end bonus.


No extra allowances for OT.

Busy yet fulfilling place

High patient load and turnover means there is never ending work to do. However, people here have a sense of purpose that fuels us through the difficult periods and our senior management tries to support us in whatever ways possible. The large patient population and complexity of care challenges us to advance our practice boundaries through research. There is room for improvement in terms of red tape / bureaucracy when seeking approval for workflow changes and innovation.

Quite a busy place. If you thinking about go off on the dot, then its not suitable. But good place to learn as there are many things to get involved. Colleagues are nice too

Challenging but meaningful

Good and friendly colleagues to work with but very fast pace job and can be stressful when lack of manpower. Sometimes will also get scolded by patients but overall meaningful job.

Long hours

Work is fun with proper guidance. Colleagues are great, managers(sisters/brothers) care for their juniors. Good opportunity for advancement, part time degree and sponsorship is available.

Lack of capable and decisive leadership

Lack of capable and decisive leadership advocated an incapable middle management and unhealthy work culture. Ground staff is often burdened with most work, worsened in an inefficient environment, resulting in a silos behaviour.

Supportive coworkers

Work is overwhelming. Mostly overflows cases even thou it’s a speaclised ward. Coworkers are supportive. But upper management will force the changes even thou it’s not realistic.

Stressful Place

Fast pace and can be quite stressful. Understaffed and colleagues mostly lunch in office at their workstation! Need to work one Saturday every month.

Difficult to take leave

Ballot yearly leaves and difficult to take adhoc leaves even when you have so many extra. Expected to do a lot of things but when you voices out, no one listens and it will just backfire.

Good place to learn

SGH has a diverse plethora of cases and discipline to choose from that there will always be something for you to learn. In terms of work life balance it is totally dependant on which department you are working at.

Fun but stressful + micromanaging supervisor

Worked at inpatient pharmacy in sgh. Had 3 months probation then worked as a confirmed staff. It’s not the usual 9-5 job, it’s shift based. Due to lack of manpower, sometimes we have to work 7 days a week or 13 days straight. Majority of the people there are fun and enjoyable to work with but some is just micromanaging and insensitive They are very open to you wanting to take up leadership position and will train you if you have potential. Be sure to work hard if you get accepted


Occasional free lunch, enjoyable work colleagues

Good place to work but you must a heart of compassionate

Is a good place to work but you must always have a right mindset and a passion to serve the society to last on. Workload can be heavy but is meaningful.

Good work experience

Work experience with them was good. It will matter only the compensation is not fair to all nurses especially the foreign hired, the salary & benefits are far behind from the local nurses.That’s why they can’t keep a hardworking and skillful nurses to stay with them long.

Good workplace but pay is not enough to meet cost of living.

Good workplace but pay is not enough to meet cost of living.SGH supports in every aspect including taking courses and advancing the career, but the pay is not enough to support a family in Singapore.
