Working at NUS

It was a very different experience from my first job, which was in Social Services and handling children with Special Needs. This time, I had the opportunity to work with Students at the Higher Education level, and that too as the Scholars Engagement Team Lead. As such, the execution of job responsibilities required more thought; as even casual exchanges could potentially lead to colourful, in-depth discussions.

Pros

Teamwork-oriented work environment; Stable

Cons

Different departments may handle issues, with differing management styles

Helpful staff

Staff over there are helpful and knowledgeable. Also very willing to help if it is within their ability. The environment can be pretty relaxed and easy to get by as most workload is evenly distributed.

Job Task is complex.

The interview and the actual job scope performance on the spot is different. Which you can take it as a challenge to learn new thing, but during that time the economic is not doing well.

Good colleagues and fun place to work with

I enjoy working in my NUS because it gives me qreat satisfaction when my work is completed. I also enjoyed the work life balance benefit that my company practice. I have learnt all my SAP from my current job and helps to build or boost better confidence in future when i worked outside of NUS. The hardest part of my job is i have to meet difficult work and could not settle on time.

Siloed workplace

Management instructions are not very clear with too many company-wide initiatives being executed at the same time. Old-school hierarchical organization that requires you to wait for ages to advance your career.

Pros

Affordable lunches and exposure to many intellectual events

Cons

Limited skill development opportunities for an academic institution

Good Institution to work for but....

Note: Applicable only to Duke-NUS Medical School Pros: Flexible work hours, good boss (case-by-case), supportive administrative department, collaborative environment Cons: Follows NUS policy, therefore poor starting pay package and yearly increment was low.

NUS as an environment Friendly Workplace

NUS provides a productive and a fun place to work. Staff especially create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Work place encourages honest and open discussion and trust in one another. If employees are friends with the people they work with, as opposed to simply being colleagues, then they’ll work better together and communicate more effectively. Having fun with colleagues is a great way for individuals to learn about each other’s traits, likes, dislikes and develop unspoken habits and rules that aid mutual understanding. This builds better understand one another’s boundaries, strengths and weaknesses.
