I have been working at National University of Singapore

Pros

Rich resources for research and self-learning, good opportunities to participate in overseas exchange programmes, advanced facilities and excellent living conditions

Cons

Not many really good professors, administrative office not very efficient, many restrictions as an international student, not very good career preparations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Professors should place more emphasis on teaching apart from their own research; administrative office should be more considerate and more efficient, less sticking to the rules; enable international students to have equal opportunities as local students; give more career guidance

    Conducting R&D, with heavy focus on laboratory work

    I have been working at National University of Singapore

    Pros

    In general, NUS has world class facilities for conducting R&D and it is currently investing efforts and resources to bring up the safe work culture and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Unless you are hired as a tenured staff (academic) or for administrative purposes, there's no clear career path set out for young, inspiring, junior R&D staff. Most of the fellowship are open for all from around the globe, and therefore the competition is intense. In addition, be prepared to work over-time from time to time as the PIs here are demanding and seldom they could execute much needed time management in their projects, and they would ask the staffs for results over a short phone call to be delivered over short time span.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would urge the senior management to rethink and reconstruct the way the research projects are sought, managed and delivered. Also, put in sufficient resources to help junior R&D staffs for a better career paths.
