Turnover rate is typical of any govt linked IT coy, e.g. NCS, ST, DSTA, etc. Not easy to work for govt, many paper work and approvals to go through and always get squeezed with tight budget projects. Promotion exercise happens only once a year, takes around 3 or more years to move up 1 level.

Benefits is slightly better than those big IT outsourcing coys. Fresh grads start with 21 days leave, salary comparable to working in gov sector, 13mth + avg 3 mth aws. Good job security, healthcare won't run out of business. Long work hours depending on individual, generally after 6.30pm the office is around 10% filled. Got pros and cons, those people who stay longer are those who can adapt to the paperwork/bureaucratic environment of the govt sector coy or who have strong passion to serve in the healthcare industry.

the good thing is, my friends working there can take long lunch breaks, tea breaks, morning breaks, dinner breaks as long as they like.

my frend's paper work along took as long as 3 months, which means he did almost nothing for 3 months while getting paid. how great can life be?

u will be working with many old birds around - nobody's breathing down your neck like in the private sector. to them, it's like a job for retirement. no risk, no surprises, and pretty stable.

who knows, the vacancies might be a sign of expanding sector too. healthcare industry is now expanding especially in sg with influx of foreign talents, better technology, and higher cancer rates.

I heard there is no work life balance there. Quite messy in the management. Turnover rate is high, that is why they keep recruiting people. Wondering why some people can stay there for long while others left within a short period of time.

Pros:
- Worklife balance depending on which projects you are in.
- Flexible hours depending on your boss. (Some bosses tends to micro-manage.)
- AWS + avg 2.5 vb
- Benefits are generally better than other company. e.g 21 days leave, mobile allowance...

Cons:
- 24/7 support because you are mainly supporting the hospitals (sick also must work)
- Slow Promotion Cycle (3 to 5 years promote once)
- High turnover rate (mainly middle management and junior level)
- High workload (you will be supporting two or more projects and dunno how many hospitals, not counting the projects you are supposed to backup your colleagues.)
- Less internal promotion because newly joined middle/higher management will bring in their own guys (mostly senior level, even without healthcare experience).
- Poor leadership.

Skill needed: You will need to know how to pull string to get promoted. (1 to 2 years promote once)

It has a nickname called Old Folks Home because most higher management are there to retire. Good company for those with no aspiration to climb the corporate ladder and wants a stable job or work till retirement.

What kind of support are you referring to? IT technician that sort of support? They don't need a degree holder for such support.

I wouldn't recommend this company for those who are young and aspire to go up the IT chain. All the management get in their own lackeys who usually are good in politics but not in getting the work done. It will take forever to get promoted unless you are a lackey of the big boss.

There are lots of clicks in the office and if you belong to one then you are OK. working here won't really improve your career prospects. Like someone rightly pointed out above it is for those who want to come and retire and want the security afforded by the GLC. Having ihis in your resume will not wow anybody and they seldom attract the kind of bright young individuals who are capable.

Don't join the company in the prime of your years, join it when you are close to retirement and can get a role like director.
