    Pros

    1) High-tech facilities
    2) Good on-campus transportation facilities
    3) A lot of options available for food on-campus (Western, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean). And it is cheap too.

    Cons

    1) On-campus accommodation is usually not provided
    2) Research grants will mostly depend on the guide under which you are working.

    Advice to Management

    Overall experience was good. It would be better to provide on-campus accommodation for all interns. There's good scope for NTU to become the best Asian university.

    I love the nice and casual working environment.
    Transport is very convenient and efficient. They provide very good staff benefits and health insurance.

    Cons

    It's always very hot outside but very cold inside all buildings in Singapore. Many secretaries are not very professional or efficient working.
