NUST exploits foreign qualified youth.

Lecturer (Former Employee)
Islamabad, Islamabad (Pakistan)

I worked at NUST full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGovernment funded research labs, bright students, good for a maximum of one year stay.

ConsMilitary style management. If you know higher-ups personally, you'll grow. Insufficient compensation. University rules and regulations discourage research environment via meager staff salaries despite heavy investment on research labs.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring in qualified civilian management on top. Stop saving money on management staff by hiring retired army officers. The foreign qualified human resource should be paid salaries that match international scales otherwise the brain drain will continue.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Worked for a number of years with NUST on key posts

Professor (Current Employee)
Islamabad, Islamabad (Pakistan)

I have been working at NUST full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou will find excellent faculty at NUST and extremely hardworking staff

ConsAll key seats are filled (occupied) by Armed forced personals, most of them are playing their 2nd innings after their retirements and therefore cannot understand the needs of their employees. Above all the people on top management are not PhD and have nothing to do with academia or research.
