So much benefit but no growth opportunity

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Basically, the working culture and benefits given to the staff are great. Work-life balance is practised here since you only have to work for 4 and half days per week. Bosses did not catch you after work. WFH policies are great and not so much pressure. The pay is also quite high. HR is professional and listen to the staff concern. Management is sometimes supportive but depends on the situation. Just that no career advancement and difficult to be promoted.

Pros

Benefit & salary high

Cons

No career growth opportunity

Pros

Flexible working hour

Cons

Unbalance workload

This is a good second job as it is only part-time.

OUM is an open market university. The university offer part-time courses run during the weekends suitable for working adults. This is a good second job.

An excellent place to have a wide range of students.

The students came from various backgrounds. Most of them had full-time jobs. It was a great place for me to be considerate to my students but at the same tie push them to commit to their study.

Somewhere to retire

A slightly above the average salary package and remuneration. The culture suits for those who seek "tranquillity" as well as a place to retire. Not so fast-paced working environment but keeps you busy.

Pros

Medical benefit covers the whole family

Cons

Salary could be better

Enjoyable and interactive class hours

Enjoyable teaching hours. Interactive classes with smiling learners Well-managed/followed class schedules Workplace is fully interactive and friendly Teaching through the Direct Method isn't impossible but very challenging. Its enemy is bilingualism (code switching to mother tongue) On time completion and submission of assignments (online) and students attained good marks that they yearn for. No student failed in any examinations

Pros

free and unlimited internet connection

Cons

The need for teaching facilities e.g. an LCD projector and an interactive board
