    Pros

    Flat hierarchy, you can approach the Director at any time. Great for fresh grads to learn, due to best marketing campaigns for a University in Malaysia. Fun and open international colleagues. Great campus environment.

    Cons

    Crazy schedule, on-call at almost any given time (including weekends). The years I was there, NO bonus at all. Crazy screaming BODs. Low integrity (when I was there).

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully they've fixed the quality of the Faculties. Stop hiring fresh grads to teach.

    I have been working at Limkokwing University of Creative Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    you'll meet amazing people from all around the world and experience a new culture, you'll be under pressure and pressed to meet deadlines almost all the time. so that might something you find intriguing.

    Cons

    Poor to minimal management skills, I know that the university started really small, and was developed with a focus on the business side of things, neglecting academic status and development most of the time while scaling. no clear internal policies or rules. and a lot of things "overlooked" most of the time, not to mention the lack of inner departments lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the hardwork and effort the staff shows, especially when it comes to working overtime or during weekends as there is no compensation.

    Pros

    Diverse student culture, modern campus building

    Cons

    Complete lack of proper management by executives, finance department staffed by poorly skilled former students, dubious financial offers made by individual staff of finance department to new students, many students falling ill to dengue in one of the student houses (Eagle Nest), quite a few lecturers not motivated anymore, students pass exams no matter how poor results just to keep the percentages up of students that pass.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your management and involvement in the daily running of the organisation

    Pros

    Multi Cultural Environment Good Starting Point

    Cons

    No compensation No benefits Horrible management structure Unprofessional president and senior management Work-life balance is almost non existent, you're expected to work anytime anywhere without expecting any additional benefits, some employees compare the situation to modern slavery. The President of the university, Tan Sri Limkokwing has had cases of sexual harassment. If you're a female and consider working in Limkokwing, try to stay away from him.

    Advice to Management

    Rebuild the whole structure. Senior management team is hopeless and disappointing; so I assume if anything can happen to make things better, it has to come from a new generation of managers in Limkokwing. Respect people, at least a little, they're human beings like you.

    I worked at Limkokwing University of Creative Technology full-time

    Pros

    Some great colleagues, and when you go through trauma together, it bonds you Very diverse student group.

    Cons

    Barely a functioning university. Work 48 hours per week at the university, minimum, many unpaid overtime and weekend hours required, especially at marketing events. Teach upwards of 8 different courses per term. Some people were literally teaching 40+ hours in 12 or more courses. They fake all their accreditation details including removing staff and students from rosters, changing grades, faking student work. The management and president are cruel and clueless, a terrible combination. They are sexist. Women all keep stilettos at their desk to go talk to management. The management frequently harasses female employees and berates everyone. Lecturers are treated very poorly in all aspects. They are treated as interchangeable. Then again, many of the lecturers were bachelor degree students the very semester before, so they are often not remotely qualified. People are fired at the drop of a hat for any reason whatsoever. The insurance is just a clinic on campus where they'll give you steroids, antibiotics, and pain killer no matter the issue. They literally only care about making money. The marketing department was bigger than any of the faculties, that should tell you something about priorities. You are not allowed to fail students for ANY reason, including never attending a single class. Worst case scenario, they defer to next term, but if they show up AT ALL and turn ANYTHING AT ALL in, you have to give them a C-, which by the way is 45%. This is seriously the worst job, I, and many others I talked to, have ever had. Unless you are sincerely desperate, avoid it at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    You should turn academic standards around completely. You should treat employees like people. Stop boasting about doing great things and do them.

    Pros

    You learn a lot! Talented and creative people from around the globe will inspire you. One department may have up to 5 different nationalities. My department (Marketing) had people from about 15 different countries.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance. What life? Sometimes I had to work on Sundays just to please to Boss.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the management. Big Boss does not have to know everything BUT he must listen to complains from the clients (students, parents, etc).
