NUS as an environment Friendly Workplace
Management Associate (Current Employee) –  15 Kent Ridge RoadSeptember 11, 2019
NUS provides a productive and a fun place to work. Staff especially create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Work place encourages honest and open discussion and trust in one another. If employees are friends with the people they work with, as opposed to simply being colleagues, then they’ll work better together and communicate more effectively.

Having fun with colleagues is a great way for individuals to learn about each other’s traits, likes, dislikes and develop unspoken habits and rules that aid mutual understanding. This builds better understand one another’s boundaries, strengths and weaknesses.

Intense but fruitful

Research is intense and challenging, but it is worthy to spend time in it and learned something through the process. The professor will help with countering obstacles and provide advice on research.

Scale
Admin Assistant (Former Employee) –  SingaporeAugust 19, 2019
1. Poor and weak top management.

2. Tyrant Deputy Director who is an ex SAF LTC who is egoistic and has a short temper fuse who loves to scream, hurl vulgarities at fellow colleagues. He is a power hungry and loves himself above others. Be extra wary.

3. Totally dis-organized unit. Poor direction, weak strategies.

Balanced work and life and good welfare
Industry Liaison Office (Current Employee) –  Kent RidgeJuly 13, 2019
Only for people who are looking for good welfare or looking to settling down in a stable workplace. The organisation is not really for people who are ambitious.

Unless you are in the management level, promises in career progression are typically nothing more than empty promises unless you work with very high profile faculty.

Organisation have a policy of "taking turns" in promotion or better performance for yearly appraisals. Organisation tends to undercut employees in their salaries.

International and Liberal
Executive (Former Employee) –  DoverJuly 11, 2019
The college has a good mix of international staff and you're definitely working quite closely with students who are bright, passionate and ready to change the world.

Organisation is still young so the culture is still not as established.

Good Work Life Balance
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Kent RidgeJune 25, 2019
Good place to be in for family-oriented individuals. Working pace is rather slow, and inflexible administrative system. A lot of time spent on mundane adminstrative work.
