Breakfast from 9 to 10.
Lunch from 12 to 1330.
Tea break from 3.30 to 4.30.

There are many different kinds of leaves given, often organised events that promote family life. But there are many scholars in there.

you have to be really cautious with how to safekeep all the confidential documents well (not leaving them unattended), laptops issued should never be lost, and the way you handle emails also have to be well managed (you cannot send out things without thinking).

All in all, i believe dsta is a good place to work, people seems to be happy as shown on their face.
Thanks for the info! DSTA seems like a good env to work in but have to keep in mind of confidential docs and regulations.

How about the career prospect and merit increment?(Previous posts mentioned that no one stay beyond 30-35 years old, turnover rate so high is it due to career prospect issue?)

May i know the "time-frame" for each promotion? From what i gathered in previous post it uses a diff scheme as MX, am i right?

Thanks in adv !
