    I worked at Nanyang Technological University as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Got to choose how many hours I worked; working from home fit my schedule at the time; wonderful boss and department. Department was one of the newer ones in the university and was very well-funded compared to its NUS counterpart.

    Cons

    Like most other work-from-home jobs for a university, this job had no promotional opportunities by its nature. I was only looking for a short-term job related to my interests while pursuing something bigger, so this worked for me at the time.
