Energetic and challenging work environment
Clinical Research Coordinator (Former Employee) –  SingaporeJuly 12, 2018
Work is hard, play is hard. A typical day includes performing phlebotomy, ECG and running the laboratory. Managing other duties according to a rotation roster gives everyone a chance at managing Quality Controls, inventory and maintenance of our machines. Management has been very supportive of advancements and listens avidly to our ideas as well as concerns. Most enjoyable part are the fun and best colleagues I have worked with.
Pros
Great bonuses
Cons
Routine work

A nice place to work
Researcher (Former Employee) –  SingaporeJanuary 23, 2018
While it is a nice place to work, changes in the skills landscape mean that progression and job security is becoming increasingly scarce. It is an academic environment. so there is probably more flexibility than a corporate one.

Job Challenges
Director (Current Employee) –  ClementiJanuary 7, 2018
KPIs are set at high bars, but management support is lacking in terms of funding, hence unrealistic expectations. Meeting customer (staff & students) expectations are tough enough, unrealistic high bars of KPIs dampens morale of serving staff.
