However, A&E Department is a place with toxic staff. DO NOT JOIN them as a PSA at A&E (toxic staff especially Filipinos and Malaysians). When they work, they will bang their drawers hard, slam their pens on the counter, do not greet you as a colleague. Some of the team leaders behave unprofessionally but being hard to find replacements, such staff are still retained due to their "knowledge" at work. However, do apply for other departments such as SOC, Wards or Non-Clinical Departments like Business Office. They have wonderful staff there. Apply for PSA at A&E at your own peril.
Pros
SGH is an established organisation with sound system in place.

Healthcare is a rising sun industry. You will pick up many health tips from Medical Professionals, Service Providers and even patients during your course of work. Never a dull moment working in Hospital and clinic setting.
Pros
Good staff welfare, many opportunities to upgrade and stay relevant.
Cons
Work in germs and disease environment, but exercising Infection Control will keep them at bay. At times, will encounter demanding and difficult customers.

The most enjoyable part of the job is team work. To survive a busy shift in ICU requires a good team work spirit. During a busy admission in ICU is so important to have lots of help from everyone.

Different division pay different starting pay for same entry level. The team of workers are passionate and co operative. Every second at work is really work alone.

Job security is ensure but exposure to new ideas are limited. The progression to the next level is limited to quota, even if you do perform well. External training are limited.

Probably the largest among the hospitals in Singapore, SGH caters to almost all medical cases known to human. The opportunity of learning is vast unfortunately some are limited to only certain groups of employees. Nurse to patient ratio probably is the most vulnerable part of the institution due to the huge number of patients needing medical care. Overall, SGH is a very good place for enriching your profession's skill.

Management very bias, promotion is not based on merit. People tend to push responsibilities away and nothing is done. Bureaucratic hierarchy, no autonomy is given.

Take over reports, attending doctors rounds and carry out orders. Serving medications and supervise junior nurses, assisting procedures. Discharges and writing reports. Worked with colleagues with different nationalities is really enjoyable. Hardest part in workplace that explaining the prognosis of DIL patients condition to their relatives.

Due to manpower shortage, nurses are often overworked, which would lead to burn out and increasing medical leave, which creates the continual vicious cycle of manpower shortage.

I don’t like the fact that the management promotes staff based on their liking. They are very personal to people and will only promote the person if the person is a yes man. The salary is not equivalent to workload. So many patients yet less pay. I find it ridiculous that you can only wear pure black shoes. I don’t think nursing care will be affected if your wear coloured shifts. Patients and relatives tend to be very rude too. And the management will always side the patient and relatives. They will always blame the staffs and put them at fault. The old people still rule the whole place. Overall, bad place to work. Unhappy environment. Bad culture.
Pros
bonus twice a year
Cons
Blaming culture.

Basically Hospital you have to put in your 200% of effort and must be on the go. Assisting Doctors and booking of appointment for the patients. Closing of accounts and tallying the balance. Counter checking the patients report and forms to be submitted to the department.
Pros
medical
Cons
long hours
