Great faculty and staff leading cutting edge research
Unable to harness the full capabilities of staff to really transform the organisation and to realise the full potential. A culture that is not open or transparent and is unwilling to listen to best practice.2

flexibility, moderate pace and nice colleagues
salary does not match market rate. Increment is also pathetic, barely matching with inflation, and no bonuses or 13th mth. They offer contract year by year. You have to do everything - there's no such thing as cross-functional teams, so you will spend alot of time learning things on your own (FAQ pages, youtube, reddit etc) and doing blindly. Company culture is a bit outdated overall, but individual team culture varies greatly depending on your boss, so whether you enjoy working in your team day-to-day depends on luck. I think it's ok to work here for a while, but not long term.

WLB? You can get the money without working and traveling around the world. Then ask the poor international PhD students to do the industrial projects.
It is contract work. If you do nothing, you will lose the job. Even you do a good job, you may also lose the job.

- Really meaningful to work with the students. - Can focus on counselling only. Unlike other institutions where you would be obligated to handle other job portfolios. - Short notice period - 1 month. So you will not have to endure torture for super long after you tender.
- Fantastically tardy management - does not care about feedback, allows people who are clinically tardy to stay in positions of power. Zero regard for staff mental well-being. Has currently hired a new head who has a terrible reputation. - Super high turnover rate which means bulk of the workload falls upon whoever is left and that perpetuates the cycle of burnout and being overworked. - Very very poor clinical supervision (quality is almost NIL - supervisor can spend the whole time talking about himself or his own problems with his own cases, while at the same time looking down on counsellors because he is trained in clinical psychology) - Terrible case documentation process - again, almost NIL. No standardised processes for case note documentation. Some counsellors even file their handwritten notes (scribbles, rather) for their documentation which is absolutely ridiculous.6

Students are great, techological infrastructure of classrooms and learning
Distance, poor leadership and management, poor human resource management, terrible team mates who do not have content knowledge, do not do work and cannot deliver - and yet do not have any consequences for their behaviour!

Great digital library access (covers most digital paywall to download papers) Affordable food (several canteens) and other facilities International mix of students and staff (some of the labs could be mostly homogeneous ethnicity though especially from East Asia) Excellent Medical Insurance coverage that is also available to dependents without extra payment Work life balance (except for some workaholic labs or groups who may even do 70+ hour work weeks)
Low Salary (not competitive compared to industry) HR practices could be better Knowledge management is almost minimal (except for published info) and in silos

Pay is not bad as they increased all researchers pays this year. Office building is nice
Experienced workplace bullying and nothing was done to protect the worker after raising it to HR. No prenatal benefits, no work life balance
- 3.030 Oct 2023ManagerCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsSingapore
One-day WFH, extra public holidays on eve of major holidays, plenty of company/department events
Very slow promotion, as well as unfair and inconsistent promotion criteria. A person that isn't productive and doesn't tend to their own core work but expands job scope is seen as more 'promotable' as another who excels at their core work well before venturing into other job scopes. Managers also gate-keep complaints, resulting in their bosses not making informed decisions at the end of the day.

Able to work independently; the flexibility to navigate projects; many things to learn from the research role.
A bit far from city
