Good place for a short time

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The difficulty of the job for contract-based researchers like postdocs mostly depend on someone's supervisor and people could have very different experiences. Although it was not my personal experience, some research groups have to come to the office during the weekends for their weekly group meetings.


Competitive salary compared to other universities overseas, Super convenient location, Above average and non-expensive food in canteens, Good library, Nice sports centre available to all staff, amazing outdoor swimming pool


Free medical and dental clinic on campus, No offer of private medical care to contract research staff, The too small and compact working environment for some research staff

A lot of untold pressure

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.

Highly stressed working enviroment with fake caring about researshers

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.


Friendly colleague


Stressful and long hours work

Productive and fun workplace

Excellent place to work with a great company culture and a range of benefits. A friendly culture is deeply instilled within the workforce, and this can be felt almost tangibly

nice working environment

Co-workers are nice and helpful. The professor is too busy to give enough help to students. Not enough meeting time. The hardest part is learning everything by myself. In return, it helps my self-learning ability. The professor gave us enough freedom to achieve what we want
