• Professor feedbacks
    #5157· 5h ago

    Professors are hired to do research, not teach, no matter how much you complain, things won't change anyway. SMU doesn't care about your feedback esp if the prof is really good at research. If you get a bad prof, just go google yourself and learn on your own, stop complaining and ruining the professors research careers ok

  • Normal, not normal?
    #5158rant· 13h ago

    I am in my early 40s, not stayed in a full time job for more than a year, did mostly part time and free lance. Obviously not much savings or CPF. I kind of tired of life and don't know what to do in life. It has been this way since I graduated from Poly. Everytime I told someone working in a "normal job" (office environment) or one with too much people, gives me anxiety and often I ended up with very bad emotions, they would either scoff or critise me. During one of my longer job (8 months), I was either crying or having nightmares every night during the last 1.5 months before I left. It really doesn't help when my parents would guilt trip me, claiming I am just using mental health as excuse. My father even say that at that age, earning money is the most important thing and I should just focus on that and the anxieties and nightmares would just go away. But I can't agree with him. I still left the company eventually when I was hinted to leave. (No way I can be efficient with my mental state of that time). I got into a self help group but it wasn't very helpful. The group leader introduced me to a counsellor who is looking for clients to help with her internship. (i don't know the details) I got counselling for a cheap price. Things did get better and I managed to get into short term PT jobs and then delivery jobs (Grab, PickUp, Parcels...etc) Things got stagnant then after my counselling sessions ends. I remained in my delivery jobs as the social interactions are really minimal and I mainly work alone. However, whenever relatives visits us or when we visited them (Cny or other celebrations), they always reminded me I am not normal... It's not normal to not have a full time job, not having friends or starting a family. They even hinted that I am leeching off my parents even though I am paying all my bills myself. I don't chip in for the untility bills but I pay for my parents phone bills and gave $150-200 allowance to my parents monthly. (Depending on my earnings)

  • Am in a technology company. Our developer head...
    #5166advice· 13h ago

    Am in a technology company. Our developer head was from overseas and was very aggressive in getting work done his way. He would always pull relationships and force other department heads to follow his ways. After a few years of working and some reorg, the dev department grew larger and his aggressive ways became even more unbearable. He would even ask other department staff to work on things not within their job scope or skillsets, and yet making them take responsibility of resulting mistakes. This was reflected to higher ups but nothing was done to prevent such things from happening again and again. Worst of all, more of same countrymen were engaged into the company, distributed to different departments, all birds of the same feather creating a culture of looking down or even bullying Singaporeans lower down in the hierarchy. Senior leads and management have turned a blind eye to the long standing issues making the company's turnover rate very high. Recently, many responsible Singaporean staff received unfair appraisals due to irresponsible work tasks geared towards helping a certain group of countrymen. It's not a good sign going on like this...sigh
