    I worked at University of York full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The University of York is a leading university and there is outstanding research done within its wall. There is a lot of enthusiasm and opportunity to grow. It is situated in the very nice and scenic city of York that attracts many visitors.
    I enjoyed the work place and my colleagues but had to leave due to lack of funding

    Cons

    Regrettably a lot of the opportunities the university of york has to grow go underutilized.

    Former Employee - Researcher in York, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Researcher in York, England (UK)

    I worked at University of York full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Highly-ranked University, Excellent campus & facilities, beautiful city.

    Cons

    Not all academic staff up to high standards. Lack of funding and future career prospects. Continuous focus on writing-up as many as possible EU or EPSRC funding proposals without considering scientific quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The review processes for academics and researchers are useless. People complete the every year, but no action is ever taken out of them. The management should make use of them to improve the quality of teaching and research.
