Approves of CEO

I have been working at National University of Singapore full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good facilities Freedom to work on one's own projects International recognition Knowledgeable supervisors Chance to collaborate with external researchers Generous pay (but it stays the same).

Cons

Hectic work schedule - no work-life balance. Expected to work at all times. Too much emphasis on producing publications, simply for the sake of publications.

Advice to Management

Stop putting so much emphasis on publications. This prevents researchers from pursuing the really important problems since they are also generally also very risky.
