    Resources Rich, Management Deaf

    Postdoctoral (Current Employee) Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

    ProsGreat people and resources.
    Stimulating research being done.
    Good collaborative environment.

    ConsGood researchers DO NOT make for good management. Bureaucracy is taking-over in a big way. Many many more administrators discussing and paper-pushing issues that simply are not relevant to primary mission of the Medical Research Council. The admin body is no longer supportive but has its own existence separate from the research. Scientists have a lot more paper-work and bureaucracy to deal with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrim the admin staff back to bare levels and rebuild for an efficient core that supports primary function of the MRC.
