Competitive, faced paced but lack true collaborative culture. Management very concern about visibility and presentation that sometimes what's right for the business gets compromised. Be prepared to play politics. Large population of the middle and upper management work overtime and over weekends/public holidays. Progression is slow and very competitive.
Nice working level colleagues, intellectual people
Long long hours, bosses that play politics
The most frustrating part is the feeling that the organization does not value its staff. Freezing permanent headcount and hiring people on contracts is currently the norm. A lack of job security aside, contract staff also have less entitlements compared to full-time permanent staff, which is quite unfair.
After almost 17 years with the Board, I discovered the hidden potentials that I never knew I possesed i.e. the art of interacting with people. How to win customers and how to handle difficult situations. Thru the years, I have attended numerous Courses that helped groomed me for this position.
To meet people
Good work culture though can be a tad more organised in terms of work processes. Other than that, work culture is flexible though one may have too many things to do on one's plate at any point in time. Job scope changes to meet departmental needs.
Flexible work hours, dynamism hence you learn and experience alot.
Too many things on one's plate

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
It is an open office concept. Pretty much you get freedom while working here because your managers won't always be looking out for you as there is a trust build between the team and the higher authority. Cons you don't really have a work life balance because of my job scope even on weekends when there are media in town, we will have to be on standby to attend to the media.
Basically i learned that Singapore is one of d most visited countries by tourists all over the world. I report directly under the supervision of my superior who are so understanding and always comply to her staff needs such as transport facilities and flexibility of working hours. Surrounded by many seniors who always willing to help and ready to teach me. Beside all that i mention above i did not find any difficulties working with Singapore Tourism Board. But the journey from my place to Tuas that i find very inconvenience for me. We work as a team and i can say more like a family.

Singapore Tourism Board, as government National Tourism Organization, is one of the most dynamic government agencies around. I was exposed to a variety of experiences and was given the opportunity to develop in-depth, various skill sets to help me succeed. I honed my negotiations and lobbying skills in G2G platforms and in B2B interactions. I also developed the ability to quickly assess issues and prioritize projects in a fast paced environment. The most enjoyable part of being in STB was when I was made Area Director and had to lead a team. It was very satisfying to be able to build my own team, nurture and lead them to be a strong and cohesive business unit. Overall, the Singapore Tourism Board is a great place for those who are seeking to be exposed to a variety of responsibilities and roles.
