Good to retire

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good work life balance, good benefits, learning stagnates after a while. Pay on the lower end but there is bonus and AWS. The merit increment is almost like nothing.

Pros

Good for retirement

Cons

Nothing to learn, too specialised roles

Focused on goals, supportive staff

NTU is a fun place to work. The salary is competitive. If I have a chance to go back, I would. My colleagues and my supervisor were always helpful in supporting me in and out of office. I am always thankful for that.

Pros

Green environment, many canteens

Cons

career advancement is not opaque enough.

Poor Experience with Direct Supervisor

Old timer are big time bully and they are worried that they might be replaced by newly joined staff. There was no on-boarding, no briefing, no introduction to the team. Work done can be over ride by immediate supervisor without informing you. Basically it is a waste of time working for an old timer as they will never accept any of your suggestions.

Pros

Nice Environment

Cons

Poor Management

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.

Productive and interactive workplace

Its a friendly and interactive workplace to learn more on the emerging technologies and improve our research and project management skills. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know and interact with many knowledgeable people everyday.

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

Cons

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!
