    I have been working at University College Dublin full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice campus
    Friendly staff
    Relatively good work atmosphere

    Cons

    No career progression as a postdoc. Cannot even transfer between the PD1 and PD2 scales without re-interviewing for the position which essentially gives you no job security over and above a 2 year contract. Poorly paid in comparison to other Irish institutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Larger problems in terms of research funding in general which is not UCD's fault but management could help by providing more career opportunities and by reversing the PD1/PD2 framework which appears to be hindering progress rather than helping it.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
