those who stay are people who cannot find jobs elsewhere. If you want to learn, do you want to learn from these people who are not valued elsewhere?
Ask them direct and hard questions, like whatís the retention rate, how long staff stays? Only HR and Marketing people, are there actually Directors/ Asst Director from working groups around to talk to to understand better the work within IMDA? Can you provide the general backgrounds of the assistant director/ director for available positions? What are the working hours like, is there a worklife balance?

Just ask the hard questions, and youíll have a sense how the culture like in IMDA

The demoralization can be felt within weeks you are there because the boss has anger management issue and has the habit of "name and shame" you infront of internal and external parties. It just makes one feel so super unappreciated after long hours of working. People can't wait to leave for the sake of their mental well-being? In my point of view, i am actually quite shocked when my friend told me about such bosses because i thought such era should have long gone? And working in public service before we have a code of conduct to follow and i seriously doubted the capability of HR getting rid of such bosses.

Many people i spoke to agree that imda in general is working super long hours and is common to work past mid night because directions keep changing and so are the working document (e.g. PowerPoint) that is required to be submitted or presented to the management. It is all about amending papers and ppt to what the bosses would like it to be. The way my friend spoke about it makes me feel like, everyone is required to be a marketeer.
name and shame

If you are a ICT grad, it's better to join a tech company to work and learn from real tech people. But if you have a strong will to join public service, then go for Govtech instead.

IMDA isn't SAF where people are expected to say yes sir yes sir. He needs to acknowledge the fact that he's just a generalist (pun intended) without ICT background so he needs to accept alternative views from his staff who are ICT-trained.

Unfortunately, many people with real ICT experience have quit. All that remains are paper pushers who don't even know how to set up a LAN.
This type of sloppy work standard can be in administrative service?

With continuous OT at night, inept leadership, bootlick culture and toxic bosses, this is true.
those who remains are people who cannot find jobs elsewhere. to fresh grads or anyone who wants to join, think 1000x - you are learning from unskilled "bosses" who are not valued elsewhere.

open house? that's just a wayang show from HR to show they are doing something. the hr team rots. when have they listened or helped staff? even their team has high turnover, speaks about the leadership
