No opinion of CEO

I worked at Nanyang Technological University as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

- Good insurance
- Decent benefits
- Good work-life balance
- Many leaves per year

Cons

- Low salary.
- Very very low annual increment, sometimes single digit.
- No career opportunities, at all.
- Very hard to use the flexible benefit points. Either the ORIGINAL or certified copy of receipt is required. Yeah right, as if original receipt is not needed for warranty and EVERY shop provides certified copy of receipt.
- Very very very very slow process needed if dealing with HR (you can expect around 2 month of "standard" process just to start working after you are recruited by professor).
- Forget about asking anything from HR if your title does not end with "Professor", even then, many reasonable requests will end up ignored.

Advice to Management

Do something about the HR department

    I worked at Nanyang Technological University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing positive to start with.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, bias, unreasonable, lack ethical moral, lack professional management skills, tend to take sides of their own people and especially people who share the same religious like them. Lack integrity, like to spin up story so as to make themselves look good on the basis of twisting the fact and making what is not correct into right, by rallying their supporters to support their wrong view and twisting of the truth. Do not have the background to do the job but still pretend they are the most qualified individual to do the role and besides, dealing every day, behaving like they are the boss of the company in their unreasonable and twisting belief, and that being their subordinate is like their slave.

    Twisting of facts and rallying their own people to support them on the fact that they are wrong but make it appear like as though they are right and the other party is wrong. Usually, get support by buying group or individual lunch.

    Utterly disgusting and toxin behaviours that is exactly how in history the rich treat the poor. It is a shame that such character still exists in today's era and affecting a public university's reputation.

    Advice to Management

    Need the right talent to mangement and not a group of worms who keep bring their own people into the organisation, exploiting and riding on the system to bring all benefits to themselves only.
