    I worked at Limkokwing University of Creative Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Love the people! Your colleagues come from all over the world. The diversity is a great input to enhance your creativity and cultural literacy. Also, the lack of staff means you have a lot of flexibility. You can learn a great deal from working there and your next job will be a breeze. Apart from that, you get to meet and greet many leaders, ambassadors, celebrities, politicians and other influential icons from around the world. It's a whole new level of networking.

    Cons

    Forget about social life—your spouse, family, and friends will eventually hate you. Not even kidding. Long working hours (sometimes even on public holidays), low salaries, unreasonable deadlines, insane politics and many other factors will frustrate the hell out of you. Unless you are willing to ignore all the shortcomings from the company (simply because you want to learn and widen your exposure), please don't even bother to apply.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat your staff like humans. Allow equal opportunity and don't let good looks blind you from real talent.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Limkokwing University of Creative Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    International brand. Started off with education excellence as priority.

    Cons

    Branding clouded all judgement and decisions. When the uni employed all your alumni as lecturers, quality started to go down the drain.

    Advice to Management

    Tan Sri should stay home or only come once in a while. Don't micro manage. The Vice President are useless.

    Pros

    most popular university and also a good international environment with ample opportunity for career growth.

    Cons

    Dictatorship at the management level that is like a chain reaction and percolates to all levels

    Advice to Management

    Keeping the employees pleasant is as important as keeping the students happy because cheerful employees will gladly do better service even without being prompted to do so. Also, happy employees will treat the students better thereby resulting in happy students and this in turn will lead to better word of mouth marketing by students and increased student intake .
