      Pros

      It is very likely that one can find a research-related job later after working as an RA at PolyU.

      Cons

      The pay is relatively low at the average level of Hong Kong residents' income. However, it is understandable.

      A lot of freedom but no management

      15 Dec 2017 - Research Associate in Hong Kong
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A lot of freedom in work, allowing to you make your own research sub-goals, and your own research approaches. But this is very different in different teams, usually dependent on the leader's personal style. If you are luck to have a very open-minded leader, then your creativity will be inspired well. If you are unlucky to have some typical Hong Kong style professor as your team leader, then usually they want you to work on what he / she has been working for 20 or 30 years, because they reject to learn new things.

      Cons

      A lot of researchers tend to work along, do not communicate. The evaluation of work and employment process is usually quite racial. If you are white, you can just sit there playing games and drinking coffee, doing whatever you want and the boss will still like you. If you are a Chinese, even you are the main contributor of the project, the top boss may even don't know what job you are doing.
