    I worked at National University of Singapore part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - You will have accessed to fairly well-equipped laboratories - You are given significant freedom to purse your research interests - You can have amber exposure to the industry

    Cons

    - Meeting KPIs (e.g., quantity of publications) can be rather stressful, which inhibits the willingness to embark on a large scale project.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps you could ease on the KPIs or be a bit more flexible for the possibility of the fruition of bigger milestones
