    I worked at Chinese University of Hong Kong

    Pros

    Cutting edge research core facilities with great system running booking, proper usage and maintenance with a group of experienced technicians. Ensure efficiency of performing experiment and provide professional advice on data analysis.

    Cons

    No professional support for postdoctoral career development. Solely depends on the mentor. Difficult for the qualified experienced postgraduate to advance to Assistant Professor. University tends to hire oversea scientists for those positions than those postgraduates they cultivated. A complete gap in scientist training and advance in University.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a postdoctoral Association to assist postdoctoral development in all available aspects : academic,industrial and administration.

    I worked at Chinese University of Hong Kong full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Location is good, an international city with a lot of challenges and chances as well. The professors are nice, explaining questions patiently.

    Cons

    The peer average quality of peer student is amazingly low, probably because of the low-bar of admission. Most of Hong Kong resident is able to get in such kind of schools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more international, give more chances to the international students instead of local, which is not competitive enough at all if not protected by the local gov.
