Bureaucratic Environment

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Bureaucratic Environment, non collaborative environment. Salary increment very little. Very slow promotion and not based on merit, but based kn year of service.

Not recommended for the young and energetic

Depending on the department which you are in, work pace and culture is very different. This might be a good place for administrative staff but technical/engineering staff are not valued as much. Compensation wise, it is not as competitive. Many staff from all levels have left and unable to find replacements largely due to aggressive hiring by other companies. Unless you have a good number of years of working experience, you will find salary progression and promotion very unattractive.There are some good benefits though. Medical and dental benefits are reasonable. Parents and childcare leave etc.This is a good place if you have young kids which requires you to knock off from work on time and not have last minute meetings etc. No one will question you on your maternity leave.However, if you are young, energetic and wants career progression, you may want to go somewhere else. Progression is really slow here if any.

flexible arrangement

Working in a top university with many resource within reach. Focus quite heavily in writing papers to maintain the ranking. Flexible working hours but don't expect a high salary.

Relaxed

Good to work there. Nice environment and Nice colleagues. I was hired as contract staff and there are lot of differences between permanent and contract staff. Permanent position got lots of corporate benefits.

Fun yet tiring

Having starting the role as a research fellow, work has been amazing but tiring. Expected to work out of ordinary hours to finish task at hand. Good if you’re passionate on the topic

Pros

Cheap lunch

Cons

Long hours, challenging topic

excellent work and learning scope

Lot of technical they will arrange for you training which you might not be familiar during academic career. Excellent scope of learning from the knowledgeable professors and senior and colleagues. You must feel happy at the end of everyday. But no job security. If you are a fresh graduate and want to gain knowledge, you are strongly recommended to start your career here.

Pros

excellent characterization facility

Cons

poor salary

Workplace culture in the company

One is expected to facilitate and resolve matters pertaining from procurement, finance, safety, facilities, HR, IT, Website and Event functions. Salary package offered is not aligned with the duties and responsibilities of the job. There is lack of career advancement or progression in the admin cluster.

Pros

Staff medical benefits

Cons

Silo work culture, long working hours, Salary compensation not aligned

Slow and Low stress Environment

Everyone follows the Starting work and knocking off timing to the dot, even lunch time they would time it to be exactly 1 hour. Work environment is low stress and slow paced as compared to corporate life, work life balance is a definite as working overtime is considered a taboo thing and approval from management is required if you need to return to office after office hours and on weekends.Staff would often stay in the same position/office when they joined and movement across departments and schools are very rare.Benefits are comparable and good enough, with an on-campus free clinic

Pros

Work life balance and low stress

Cons

Dead End Jobs

Good to retire

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.

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

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

There is no growth in your life.

Job nature

It is a challenging job whereby you play a coordination role for an event. This job has its peak and non-peak period whereby you may need to take care a few events simultaneously. This job is also interesting as it allows you to meet and interact with people from various industries.

Pros

Understanding bosses

Cons

Many red-tapes and slow in salary increment

Work can be busy during term time

The workplace can be busy during term time but during holidays, the school is quieter and we have more time to clear up backlogs. The students are the stakeholders so it is a youthful working environment. There is not a lot of advancement or increment in salary but allows worklife balance.

Pros

chartered buses to home

Cons

work can be demanding especially when there are lack of resources
