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.
Teamwork-oriented work environment; Stable
Different departments may handle issues, with differing management styles
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.
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.
Affordable lunches and exposure to many intellectual events
Limited skill development opportunities for an academic institution

University and its research keeps pace with the demand of the health care industry and with the recent advancement in the field of medicine and health care. In fact it is here that innovations and advances originate. Glad to have been a part of this institution.
Graduate Teaching Assistant Faculty of Arts and Social Science, National University of Singapore • Tutored 180 undergraduate students during tutorial classes for 4 modules and received the Best Teaching Award from the Faculty of Arts and Social Science and Department of Chinese Studies • Prepared and organized teaching materials and conducted tutorial lessons effectively, which resulted in a higher percentage of ‘A’ than the cohort average. • Provided constructive suggestions to improve teaching efficiency, which was accepted by module managers.
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 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.
