    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 ManagementAdvice

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