  1. Lovely people, awful processes.

    I worked at University College Cork as a contractor

    Pros

    Great people, autonomy and atmosphere.

    Cons

    Dealing with the administration processes of operational functions such as the finance and IT is so difficult. The processes are not designed to support the staff. For example, UCC has a credit card. One card for purchases to be shared between 2,500 staff. It is hard to believe.


  2. A good place to learn, and work part-time in academia

    Pros

    You get to use all the academic utilities like library, printing, etc. which is great when you're doing research. The work is no too tedious and the pay is decent according to the pay levels here. The professors offer help, and are very friendly. The students are helpful and understanding as well.

    Cons

    Nothing exciting or challenging as the work is merely assisting the ongoings in the lab.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some more interesting work and challenges to the students.


  3. A Very good environment for study
