I work with quite a few DSTA procurement people in my past life.

1. they have a high workload.
2. they have a structured promotion till the rank of manager
3. Senior Exec, AM, M, SM
4. i know of people who reach SM within 6 years

Long hours and need to chiong but once u know the ropes, very fast and easy

I have been told that the procurement department experiences high turnover, mainly due to the high workload. I have also heard some stories (anecdotal in nature; unverifiable) that the working hours are very long in the procurement department, so much so that the earliest you can leave for home is 6:30PM, assuming that report to work at 8:30am.

Another pain-point would be the routine work, which I don't mind honestly. But from what I gather, it is a gloomy picture of DSTA's procurement department. Anybody can give inputs? How are the bosses like?

Applied for their role because I needed a job. At the stage where they are asking for additional documents. No invites for interviews yet, probably due to the circuit breaker period.

There is [email protected] but the earlier poster exaggerated a bit, sometimes got busy period, sometimes got lull period. Depends on business unit but there's definitely more lull than busy periods.

Question Progression for Non-Tech

Got a job offer from DSTA as a senior procurement exec. Starting pay is good, benefits are reasonable. But I'm really worried about progression and salary increment for the non-tech side as well as skill transferability if I want to jump ship. Anyone can enlighten me?

Do you happen to know what their typical work day is like? Asking because 'high' workload could be subjective. TIA!

Where can a DSTA project manager go after working for a few years, feeling quite stuck in this role with no transferable skills.
