      Rating for Research Laboratory Workers

      18 Jun 2020 - Graduate Research Assistant in Hong Kong
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Friendly, dynamic, and resourceful environment with an open-door policy. It is easy to go around and ask people for help even when it comes to borrowing resources such as chemicals.

      Cons

      Lack of state-of-the-art equipment is an absolute downfall of the university. The corridor of the science labs is extremely narrow. Workplace toxicity is rampant, with unfortunately a lot of it comes from the professors themselves, and some colleagues can be very conservative. There are also cases when research ideas can be scooped with few people caring about research ethics. Backstabbing is a common practice there. The "publish or perish" culture is definitely present at the moment (written in 2020)
