My immediate supervisor who is crazy, always blames the staff and even asked to report to police just because the staff take something from his pigeon hole to his office before he left office. He even blamed the staff when the staff contacted him when he was taking his holiday. Rude and impolite!
The management do not trust their staff and there is no team work here. No matter how much effort you did for 99% of your duty, you will be blame for the 1 % fault. Warning letter is their usual weapon and as tools for the management to terminate the contract staff or put a bad record on the performance review. Old permanent staff were forced to retired earlier. It is stressful working here as the management do not provide any support to the subordinate and only put burden on you again. Management do not make decision and projects drag on. I have no one to hand over my project up to my last date. Only frontline staff and contractor will be blame responsible for the delay and quality. Think twice before you decided to resign you job and join this University.
I had wonderful working experience at the City University of Hong Kong. My colleagues were easy to get along with. My boss gave me explicit and professional instruction on how to carry out the research project. The working environment was friendly and kind.
Although it is quick flexible and "free" as an academics, there can be double standards in the management,despite all the written documents and the actual criteria can be political and personality biased. Campus politics is severe. One does enjoy the company of the eager students.
Quite flexible in the professional work
Never know what the management wants depsite all the written materials.
I worked as a research assistant for 1.5 years here. There are a variety of training or educational resources to improve the knowledge and skill base, which are usually free of with little cost of employees and students. The drawback is the great stress, which can depend on the content of your research, your supervisor, and working environment. The laboratory usually do not have windows, which drastically limit your exposure to natural light. This could also be a factor of highered stress I observed on the research/technical assistants here.
International, convenient location, abundant training/educational resources
I have started my work enthusiastically. The first advice I got is that this job is full time and I should be at work all day long. a typical day starts at 9 am but there is no end for the day and nobody cares how long you have been asked to stay at the office or lab. All the management was in the direction of obtaining the results no matter what. The workplace culture is like you are working in a shoe box with all the people who are talking in Mandarin and you fill loanly and excluded.
Stressful and long hours work
• Performed teaching duties, prepared teaching materials and assessed students assignments • Achieved 5.89 out of 7 teaching scores and received appreciation letters from students about my clear explanations, well-prepared teaching materials and friendly personality • 3 out of 20 students received offers from the big 4 accounting firms after I assisted them with resumes and preparation of interviews in both English and Mandarin
Working as part time assistant in the City University of Hong Kong, I not only gained experience, but I also learnt to work against deadlines and be responsible and considerate. The working place is pleasant and relaxing and the colleagues are my schoolmates. Professors come time to time to check out our progress and make sure that we are on track.
City University of Hong Kong is a very caring place where people are nice and supportive to each other. Besides, people are very collaborative and professional, which make work go smoothly and efficiently.
great work culture
less career advancement opportunities
I assists ten year-one students to prepare for classes, formulate study plans and review course materials. I could hold my tutorial during my spare time, not restricted to a given time. I learnt how to help improve their learning skills and master the course content well.
