Management must be more sensitive to the mentor's welfare.

Must give more benefits like 13th month pay and other bonus to mentors.


Must give more holidays for mentors fo take a rest also.

I'm happy that I have supportive colleagues. the work itself is very stressful. One of the things I admire about my work is our ability to manage a team remotely.

There was a slight change of Management in late 2016. It became a harder for me to seek help from the Head of SCC as priority will be given to staff that are close to her.

Poor communication from the Head of SCC.


Ratings for my Appraisal is unjustifiable. Management will blame you for everything with no proper guidance. Alot of pushing blame game.


Loads of bias treatment.
Pros
Working hours is good
Cons
Low pay, no room for growth and promotion

Teaching the children to learn through play has made my days younger and grew more patience. What i enjoyed most is tying the girls' hair and dramatizing during storytelling to them which the children enjoy very much. Whenever i am with the kids, i feel younger and more energetic. There are days when the kids are more rowdy and it take more efforts to calm them down.
Pros
Free meals, Bonus, regconition
Cons
Distance to work

I was a senior teacher and have worked there for the past 8 years

The school was fun to work.


The hardest part of the job was as a senior teacher I was assisgned to undertake a lot of responsibility. And eventually, my work was unappreciated.


The most enjoyable part of the job, I loved the teachers and children in the center.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
long hours

Everyday is normal working day there I would say. So far I've learned how to do financial reports for students care centres and child care centres, namely AR. Also keying petty cash entries into IQ DYNAMICS system, doing monthly GIRO Reports and sending the bank for student's monthly school fee deduction.

My co-workers are the best part of my working life there, as they are very friendly, jovial and fun to work with.
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
Limited benefits granted to the staffs
