With HR at least you know what you're getting into, but for media industry dev they market their role in the JD like so glam, but in reality it's just handling grants. Nothing glam at all. I was expecting high profile media tasks such as organising events/mar comms/media relations type.

The best part is, you can't tell that the role is actually about handling grants just by reading the JD. They packaged it as project management in the JD lol. Grants just put grants lah, simi project management! *roll eyes*

But then again, the entire imda is just damn good at marketing lah. All the punny hash tags #techthatstep, dynamic events that scream nothing but cool and happening, corporate leaders who profile themselves and the work they had achieved as high impact level on linkedin, and even the physical office is just so nice to be in.

It literally is the most perfect stat board in SG I've ever seen, almost like as if I'm in corporate "Instagram", until I read all the negative reviews on Glassdoor and in this forum. Even the work processes are so instagram inspired, you know, trying to figure out CE's erratic algorithm and forever "uploading" some aesthetic ppt just so you can gain as many likes as possible from every layer. IG upload 1 time will do, imda staff upload 20 times for the likes :/

Behind the facade of perfection is the unraveling of horrors and the stuff of nightmares for you guys.
Those idiots always like to post some random event that took place at the 4th floor pantry featuring a speaker "from the industry"

Lmao those speakers were either given a scholarship or their companies got a grant so they just LL go to IMDA to entertain.

But those idiots really believe they have organised a marvelous event and have to show off on linkedin

Sorry to hear that you were being ridiculed during the interview. But it's true. Everyone, whether it's gov, private, academia, is ridiculing IMDA.

I ever attended a networking event on blockchain. 2 of the many topics that were discussed were on regulatory frameworks and talent. The topics were somehow converged and the speaker joked how IMDA itself lacked the expertise yet wants to have a say in it and commented that more than 60% of the staff have quit.

Everybody just laughed while I kept quiet because I was afraid people might know I used to work at this garbage dump.

Reminds me of a convo I overheard that PDPC's AI Advisory Guidelines was just repeating things that people already know, and got nothing new inside so not important to read. This was at a large conference where an IMDA Director emphasised to a big roomful of audience that it was her IMDA team that drafted the Guidelines, not PDPC 😅

I thought it was already kinda embarrassing that people say your Guidelines got nothing much inside. Then add on the Director talking like got turf war between IMDA and PDPC... malu sia.

Don't know? If don't have any turf war then why need to emphasise that it's an IMDA team that drafted the guidelines, and not PDPC? How does stating this contribute to discussion on the content of the guidelines?
