Default IMDA (under MCI)

Hi all,

Anybody who have worked at either Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) and/or the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) care to share their opinions and experiences of the work and organisation culture at these places?

Thanks in advance and greatly appreciated!

Have been with IMDA for a year and a half now. Organization culture is pretty friendly, not too many politics and drama given that its a statboard. However, should you choose to join the public service, please be prepared for the multi layers of approval and red lines that severely impacts the efficiency on a lot of matters.

Aside from the typical cons of the public service, id say IMDA is a pretty nice place to work at. Weve got a killer pantry/office which is a plus too.

wrong place to come if you are looking for work life balance. this org is looking for high performing ppl. if u want to come and slack, wrong place.

if you cannot perform, you will be ask to go. workload is high and you are expected to do things well yet fast.

management is pretty good, but whole org overworked.

Grade 7 is very low bro. Grades 6 and 7 are for fresh graduates or 0-1 years of experience.

I was with IMDA for less than a year. These are pros and cons: -

Pro
(1) Remuneration is supposedly pegged to fast-growing tech sector.
(2) Lots of interesting projects that have direct impact on Singapore society and Singapore economy.
(3) A lot of projects are in national spotlight. You can see Singapore 2019 budget and more than 20% of the projects therein (relating to economy) are spearheaded by IMDA.

Con
(1) Government service is bureaucratic and the directors (and those below) are fearful and only want to protect their position. I joined mid-career and i have never seen people so fearful of giving less than favourable news to their line managers.
(2) Hierarchical and divorced from private sector.
(3) High turnover. When I was there, between 15-20% leaves the organisation within a 12 month period.
(4) Level of competence of your colleagues (even those who are assistant or deputy director level) are very very low.

IMDA pays salary, 13th month, performance bonus and corporate bonus. Performance bonus for a new joiner is 2.75 months (and this is quite fixed unless you are an exceptional performer or got a promotion). Corporate bonus is between 1 to 1.5 months.

They don't follow the ministry.
