Fast paced and competitive work environment

Working as a teaching assistant was often very stressful, you are required to work without supervision. The job involved working at several after hour functions that were not included in the paid working hours. The job also required doing a lot of work after hours at home.

Cons

After hour functions that are not included in paid working hours.

A challenging work environment

You can work happily here providing you don’t mind the pressure of completing research whilst engaging in teaching and learning. Salary will never rival the private sector so go in with eyes wide open on that score. 😐

Good place to work

- Experience of working in a University (Tertiary institution) was enriching - Supervisors are humble, cultured and nurture a work environment that, despite our mutli-cultural backgrounds leaves one wishing they had always worked here. - The environment has given me exposure to new technologies and greater computer skill. - The people and the end of a hard days work with great collegues makes my work enjoyable, but that is dampened at the end of the month by the meager salary.

Pros

I enjoyed free lunches, free tea

Cons

small salary

Very motivational environment.

The working environment is very motivating. It is extremely administratively organised and encouraging. The job expects you to do exactly what you signed up for in the contract, and nothing more. I loved It!

Pros

Amazing staff interaction, friendly, professional, caring.

Cons

Little monthly salary.

Tranquil, productive and challenging.

The workplace was conducive and was filled with very helpful people, however, as a biologist you spend very long hours at still positions with very little movement. This does not bother me very much anymore as I have gotten used to it. Being in the same position for hours has also taught me to be patient and breath deeply in an attempt to calm myself down and think thoroughly about my life and career.

Pros

Flexible hours

Cons

Being stationary for very long hours when working the microscope.
