Ambiente di lavoro molto interessante
Ho svolto presso questa università un tirocinio nel quale ho lavorato sul mio progetto di tesi di laurea magistrale. Effettuavo giornalmente analisi di Gas Cromatografia accoppiata a spettrometria di massa. Ho inviato dei campioni di DNA ad una azienda di Singapore ed ho interpretato le analisi di metagenomica.

Friendly environment
Lab work and research on project are the main content. I've learned that the crucial thing is to make enough preparation and investigation and risk assessment before starting experiment. The most enjoyable part of the job is good activity of the materials that I synthesized. The hardest is that my work can't get the recognition.

Productive and calm workplace
Working in NTU is amazing. The cross-culture work experience I've gained while working with different professionals of different backgrounds is definitely an eye-opening learning experience. As an independent researcher, I was given the trust and responsibility to perform my task and duties accordingly. I was trained to be an independent worker and was given ample opportunity to enhance my interpersonal and communication skills.

Bad Culture, No work life balance
It is a authoritarian culture, where old birds could find ways to let the new comers do a lot of things that they should handle.

Bosses have not advocate work life balance, difficult to take leave, expect to reply to urgent email everyday even around midnight.

Not a fun place
Typical day- Slow paced and un-productive
Learned nothing new

Management is the worst, no respect for talent, no chance to grow and too much politics


Culture is not nurturing and not enjoyable

Long day of work
There is always multi-task for many jobs for one salary and you will feel the pressure not to solve issues but to relieve the pressure from top management.
Pros
Work Life Balance

Pressure

Good for retirement
If you are a fast-pace person, you will often feel frustrated in the slow-pace working environment. Managers will comment that you have nothing to do if you complete your task faster than others. Crazily strong politics within a small department. High turnover rate. But of course, it really depends on which department you go to. I have seen happy colleagues from other departments with great bosses though. So, good luck!

Work culture is pathetic
Overspecialisation results in no one being able to answer anything even related to the job scope. Every time an issue pops up, its arrow via email to shoot someone else.

Cut Throat
It's not about what you know but who you know that gets you further working at NTU. Management does not care about lower level staff and even some who have worked for years get forgotten compared to younger staff who tend to "carry points" with those in charge.

Most staff begin on contract and depending on whether your manager finds you "useful" you could be stuck as a contract staff for years hoping that year on year you will get extended.
Pros
Flexible yearly benefits
Cons
no job security

Great collaboration
A research staff is at mercy of their P/I. Some are objective while some are just plain slave drivers. Good collaboration between labs or institution.
