    Pros

    The staff and colleagues were friendly, willing to help, and provide a learning platform. The environment was encouraging for growth and learning.

    Cons

    The job scope was stagnant after a while. Facing the same team of people every day might not be everyone's choice.

    Pros

    Good location with lots of cheap food options nearby. Physical working environment is really pleasant for most departments; as NUS is a huge place, it really depends on where the department you would be working for is situated.

    Cons

    Just as in other organisations, it all depends on your department's head (the DIrector, Deputy Director). Get a bad one, you're done for. The pay for executives and above is dismal as they don't even give 13th month. Bonus, even for good performers is not more than 3 months. It just doesn't add up...

    Advice to Management

    To the top management (i.e. President/Provost), you really have to watch the Directors... an inept one causes such grief and suffering for the department.

  10. It was great working at NUS, not so much pressure and the research resources were complete

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, all kinds of facilities available at very low prices. Nice working environment and staff.

    Cons

    A little bit crowded, wouldn't be a con if you prefer to be among people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good work!
