    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at National University of Singapore full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a Westener working in Singapore, the people at this institution make me feel very welcome. The workplace is well organised and therefore can be quickly understood, and the administrators are quite efficient in helping you, within their remit. This lets you get on with your research without too much fuss, and be as productive as you can be. There is an annual review/assessment with the prospect of a bonus, pay rise, and/or promotion, that makes the job feel like it might be heading somewhere, which is not always the case in academia. Nice campus to work on, easy transport, food, gym, facilities etc. Pay and benefits decent. The quality of those other researchers around you will depend on the specific group/department within which you work, so I don't discuss that here.

    Cons

    Perhaps the downside of the high organisation is that sometimes you have to jump through bureaucratic hoops. Expect on occasion to have to take some time out of work to watch a series of lectures and pass a surprisingly detailed exam (all online) on fire safety or conflicts of interests, then fill out a long end of year assessment that is probably only read by someone you talk to anyway. A lot of administration is done through a not-so-good online system.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have too many problems with the management. Perhaps the only thing to mention is that they should keep working to reduce the bureaucratic workload for researchers down, as after all this can only stimy their output.
