The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology 香港科技大學 Employee Review

Going downhill

the higher education landscape is getting more and more political, so are the management members of the university. everything you do has to be ultimately politically correct. culture-wise, it depends on which dept you work for, some are very laid-back and "lazy", while some are crazily busy and stressful. overall, work environment is getting worse given the change of management who lacks a truly international vision and don't know how to run a global university. hard work is not recognized, mgt spends time finding faults instead. Not the best place to work, not the worse either.

Pros

Relatively less stressful than the commercial sector; good compensation packages

Cons

Too political, not very collaborative among depts, some are very selfish and unempathic, they just care about themselves while holding you back

Stressful

Extremely stressful. The salary/studentship is trivial. If you are not Chinese you are in a disadvantage since Chinese students group together and share solutions.

Pros

Beautiful location, many great professors

Cons

You are treated like a slave, you are paid nothing
