The Aga Khan University (Pakistan) is one of the workplaces of choice in Pakistan. It brings together a diverse pool of professionals who work together as a team. Moreover, it brings together varied stakeholders to a single platform and creates synergy in the efforts to bring about social change. However, this does come without challenges. The work/life balance, oftentimes, is compromised. In addition, the working hours, 8-5 is a bit too much to maintain consistency and make the best use of the time.

A very well-balanced work place. There's a lot of learning at Aga Khan. Career progression is great and has an ideal working -environment for women.

The best part is the work dynamics plus the quality of staff and international exposure gained at the organisation.

Rarely would there be a day when work was routine. Work has always been technically and administratively intense.

I learned that I can push myself more than I ever did. While my company grew, I grew too in terms of leadership, technical skills, hard work, commitment.


The management was detail-oriented with a long term perspective. So it had high expectations from its employees. The workplace was cooperative and competitive.


The hardest part of the job was the excessive hours one had to invest in work. The enjoyable part was the work itself.
Pros
Medical benefits
Cons
Long hours

New Research projects taking off, i am the main HR Lead and have to set up new teams and establish connections all over. We all work as one team together in harmony and assist one another as achievement of objectives is ultimately beneficial for our organization.The tough part is to strike a balance between work and home at the moment as the demands of work is crucial at the moment with tight deadlines. However, the rewarding part is that these research projects ultimately benefit the lower-income group and attract aid from 1st world countries for our country.
Pros
Free Lunches, Unlimited Medical Allowance
Cons
Long Hours
