    I have been working at A*Star as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    good work-life balance, considering the field
    open collaborative atmosphere
    very international and diverse community
    biopolis is a lovely place with quite a lot of buzz
    great lab facilities

    Cons

    more acute need to meet industry aligned targets
    may need larger critical mass of talented and experienced indivs in some research areas
    improved mentorship for postdocs would be helpful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reduce redtape to procurement processes, these can slow down research planning
    improve differential bonuses to excellent/average performing staff

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
