    I have been working at Nanyang Technological University as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The good thing is your time and working places are more or less flexible, that means, you can work at home if no meeting or compulsory requirement, but you need to have a good time and quality management, otherwise, you might always finding yourself catching up deadlines. The work is not stressful, but it's not easy also. You also feel the pressure. You can build quite friendly relationship with colleagues here. Welfare are fine, with over 2000 medical outpatient found and around 600 flexban points which you can use to buy air tickets or electronic stuffs. Dining places are clean, fine and cheap. Shuttle bus and transportation services are fine.

    Cons

    I can't see much career outlook.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the labs are using old fashion equipment, more financial investment on hardware are needed.

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

    Pros

    - Good insurance - Decent benefits - Good work-life balance - Many leaves per year

    Cons

    - Low salary. - Very very low annual increment, sometimes single digit. - No career opportunities, at all. - Very hard to use the flexible benefit points. Either the ORIGINAL or certified copy of receipt is required. Yeah right, as if original receipt is not needed for warranty and EVERY shop provides certified copy of receipt. - Very very very very slow process needed if dealing with HR (you can expect around 2 month of "standard" process just to start working after you are recruited by professor). - Forget about asking anything from HR if your title does not end with "Professor", even then, many reasonable requests will end up ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Do something about the HR department
