      Pros

      A well structured university with excellent global standing and a caring employer. Comfortable work environment that helps productivity. Excellent rapport among employees and students. Many skills improvement opportunities for employees.

      Cons

      Given the constraints of the land space, one might feel the campus is cramped, but this is inevitable as NUS expands to cater to more students.

      Fulfilling, stable place to work

      Pros

      NUS is a great place to work at. While it's a big organisation of course and each department / office can vary, I would say the work is meaningful as you feel like you're making a real impact in society (whether directly or indirectly). As an established employer, NUS' processes and systems are already firmly in place so there is a lot of stability. Good work-life balance. Progressive culture when it comes to training and career opportunities for employees.

      Cons

      Because of age and size, it can be quite hierarchical and not as organic / dynamic as younger institutions.
