    Great Reputation Great Network Great Space

    Cons

    Contracts are short and communication with management is poor, with no program to encourage contract employees to stay.

    Lots of smart Irish graduates would love to work here, we have lots of ideas but need support.

    I have been working at Trinity College Dublin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The campus is one of the most beautiful I've ever been to. It makes life very relaxing and calm. City centre oriented too.

    Cons

    There is no work ethic among a lot of staff. It can be very hard to get things done, especially non academic things like booking rooms, setting up accounts, IT, etc

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a complete reorganisation of the non academic staff, with a drive to get people to work significantly harder.

    I worked at Trinity College Dublin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to do research - I was working on a european research project. Great if you are doing a PhD at the same time like I was.

    Cons

    Administration - boss was unstructured and highly emotional. Made honest communication impossible and the experience much harder to manage than it should have been. Also put a lot of unneeded stress into my life.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor managers and have a blind review of research management
