Just nice
Have a nice working environment. Staff can use the university facility easily, relationship with other departments also good. The hardest part is to fulfil the needs of students.

Workplace culture is intense
Cut-throat and always telling employees that their jobs are on the line. The company always communicates they are losing money and students to force our hands to work more and more. Same message every staff meeting.

Company with potential
UCSI has a lot of potential to become a dominating force in education in Malaysia. What I learned was, multiculturalism and ability to work with multiple races. Language was a barrier as i couldn't speak their native language. However, it was a pleasant experience
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
Slow work pace

Good work place and environment.
Different way of work. Everyday look at the same building. Compare to work as a Project manager build new building see the building grows from piling until the roof.

Need to control emotion and attitude to communicate with youngster (students) and make ourselves become their idol.


Work as a team, share knowledge workload with others. Only facing the management team that always communicate with different language.


It's a must for lecturers to attend each graduation ceremony. Sometime its effect our golden time with family. But the joy came when see the student on the stage with their scroll. Their success is our success.
Pros
Many facilities provide by University
Cons
Rigid time and schedule to suite University and MQA requirement.

Efficiently run school
General music classes using singing and instruments. I learned not to get too upset when things don't go the way i had planned. The hardest part of the job is getting to the students who seem unreachable. The most enjoyable part was working hard and having great performances.

Great students!
I loved my students at UCSI, and we had an effective curriculum for moving students along quickly in their acquisition of English as a second language.

There was a lot of uncertainty at the time I was working there about relocating to another location.


I enjoyed the teacher improvement sessions in which teachers had a chance to share with other teachers. Every workplace should do this.
