    I worked at Duke-NUS part-time

    Pros

    You get paid for two hours minimum every time you go in, even if you only put in an hour or less. The teachers and students are all very nice and professional.

    Cons

    You have to memorize a lot of information. There isn't much prior notice of when jobs are coming, so you can't rely on this as a stable source of income.

    I worked at Duke-NUS (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very well-funded laboratories, provide good access to equipment and clean glassware in the labs. High Profile speakers are invited to give talks very frequently. In general a good environment for networking and collaborating with other teams.

    Cons

    At times it can feel like you have to deal with a lot of bureaucracy. Little attention was applied to turning off lights and equipment in the labs after use and in the evenings.
