    Pros

    Kind management. good atmosphere for work. I think it's about company values. compensation are high relative to other industries.

    Cons

    I studied here. love this campus. I think it's about values too. Universities are thinking of making money instead of nurturing qualified talents. This is also shown in my division.

    I worked at Hong Kong Polytechnic as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Paid on time
    Friendly colleagues
    Free accommodation nearby
    Cheap meals

    Cons

    Very low salary
    No support or enthusiasm for project within department

    Project didn't seem to have any meaning, was an internship so very little financial reason to care but it made me wonder if the company received subsidies for providing internships.
