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.

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.

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.


good pay


short breaks, overworking people

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.


Good staff welfare, many opportunities to upgrade and stay relevant.


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.

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.
