Good place to work

Very friendly environment. Colleagues are very helpful. It depends on the boss (or professor), but most of them treat their assistant (student/employed worker) well.

Laboratory Technician

Depends on the department, task and roles could be different. And it is affected by many reasons. Basically handling clerical work, laboratory stuff and recruiting sometimes. However, very frequent late payment for travel expenses.

Efficient workplace

The University of Hong Kong is one of the Asia's most prestigious universities. The working pace in Public Health can be fast as we have to respond to the outbreak of the potential diseases in Hong Kong and China. Self-independent and high cooperative skills are needed to work here in order to react with any of the changing environment.

Depends a lot on your boss

Whether or not it is a good working experience, it depends mostly on the hiring person. In general, I was lucky and my boss is reasonable, and working hour is flexible. However, admin and HR can be rather inefficient, especially when it comes to paperwork and claimant.
