Good work experience

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Potential for growth but unfortunately hindered by poor management

Despite being a leader in healthcare, the experience gained is greatly curbed. The management functions by instilling fear into their employees and will resort to interrogations about private matters. The departments attrition rate speaks for itself.

Pros

Wide range of specialities

Cons

Invasive management

Stressful environment, good opportunity to learn as exposure is great.

The turnover in my department was really high, new staff are not supported. If you are willing to suck it up and stay, you will learn a lot. You will become a better nurse for sure but probably a jaded, burnt out one.

Pros

good pay

Cons

short breaks, overworking people

Pros

Well equipped

Cons

Long hours

SGH is a GREAT place to work!

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.

You will enjoy the job if you enjoy meeting and helping the weak and sickly to regain their health.

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!

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.

Excellent

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.

Progression to the next level is slow

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.

A place of learning and challenges

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.

Bias and Poor Culture

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.

Collegues yearly get together like dinner and dance, sports , competitions etc

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.
