Great mentors.

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.
Pros
high binus
Cons
poor mangement, staff politics

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.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Long hours

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.
Pros
Free lunches at times
Cons
long hours

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.
Pros
Fixed lunchtime of almost 1.5hrs(its the break between AM and PM sessions)
Cons
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.
Cons
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.
Pros
Medical benefits, a lot of government perks
Cons
Strict holiday leave, low manpower, very high workload amount

Rather rigid management and promotion process. Heavily top-down communication. Limited career advancement. Market stability in Healthcare sector, stable performance bonus and AWS. Prone to disease outbreak / national threats.
