During my employment, in addition of having receiving good training in assisting eye surgery, the fast-paced environment pushes my limits and spurred me to work in a more efficient way than i ever did before.
Minimal interaction time with patients.
A typical day at work - tiring and challenging Learnt to manage and overcome challenges by demanding surgeons but most fulfilling part is the patient safety is not compromised Most enjoyable part is everyone is like a family and work cohesively together
Do not trust your manager because they cannot keep secrets. The staff politics is very bad. Even if you do not share anything or a quiet person, but once you did just one mistakes everyone will know. the good thing about snec is the bonus, but it also depend on your performance.
poor mangement, staff politics
A very stable job but lacks opportunities for growth . Location is at town . Accessible by public transport . A good work place to settle down at. Not recommended for people who want to grow in terms of career.
Office politics and seniority biased
Normal office hours job, 0830 to 1730, alternate Saturdays 0800 to 1200. Learned to conduct basic eye test on patients, document the readings on on paper and software. Poor company management, was transfered to different clinics. Senior management was unfair to staffs.
freebies on nurses day
The main job was booking of appointment and receptionist. It takes a lot of effort to efficiency as many circumstances require liaison skills between patients and specialists. It was intense but enjoyable at the same time.
Singapore National Eye Centre does not look into work life balance. Work timings is always being extended and require to stay back long that intrudes into family time. Management wise takes action a little slow if there is any feedback is given via staffs. Enjoyed attending to patients and NOKs as they are always very understanding even though some challenges were faced.
Free lunches at times
We help each other during peak hrs for payment Closing time only done by supervisior when we are done for the day, we called to asked close counter but due to lack of supervisor it take 20-30mins to reach us..
Long hrs of working, hard to keep healthy, even pay for fitness gym, hardly got time to make it...
Fine balance between serving patients while maintaining amicable relations with colleagues, while need to hit targets to satisfy management.
Calling patients to convince them to take part in research-for data collection about the eye health in the three major races in Singapore. The patients will be attended to by a specialist eye doctor/ophthalmologist NOT a trainee. Those who agree will come down for a 2.5 to 3hr eye-check that involves various stations manned by medically trained co-workers. Working hours can easily spill over to non-working hours as some patients can only be contacted at night, either through phone calls or house visits. Some patients will be needed to be fetched (to and fro) to the Singapore National Eye Centre. Management will set targets for the team to achieve and I have to ensure they are met, else will have to explain why the attendance is low. Various factors come into play depending on the ethnic group that we are focusing for the particular research. Co-workers, especially those in clinic will want the recruiters to not fill up the appointments to the maximum allowable slots for some reasons such as quality of images captured, long wait involved will make some patients grumpy and even to accommodate certain staff who may take leave during certain periods. The most enjoyable part is dealing with patients, the satisfaction of knowing that my input has made their experience a good one certainly gives me a high that even my colleagues cannot give.
Fixed lunchtime of almost 1.5hrs(its the break between AM and PM sessions)
Office gossips, high staff turnover
The job scope for this position was clear-cut. As a Medical Records Officer, I supervised archiving of medical records for off-site storage by conducting quality control and liaising with external vendors. In addition, I handled administrative duties such as data entry of archived records and data maintenance of existing medical records using the SAP System. Despite the simple tasks assigned to this temporary position, the job culture was not encouraging as seen from the high staff turnover rate. The morale of the department is usually low due to the manager’s inability to keep staff motivated.
Work on Weekends
This is a good place to start out to learn without any experience but soon after you would realize that the growth in the company relevant to you is very little. I've learned a lot about Ophthalmic Imaging but it's a place that I can't stay forever because there isn't much opportunity to rise or climb.
Medical benefits, a lot of government perks
Strict holiday leave, low manpower, very high workload amount
Met all sort of people, characters and behaviors. The hardest part of the job is to face difficult patients and family members. I to calm them down and try to solve the problem that is making them unhappy.
Training was provided. Understanding management.
