    I worked at Queen's University Belfast full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    QUB provides an excellent environment to work in with academic freedom and encouragement to develop and innovate.

    Cons

    Too many centralised functions and paperwork. Ironically a process designed to make efficiencies leads to many many more pointless meetings and paperwork (admin?) for academics all the while the central administration growing in number and incompetence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decentralise and significantly reduce your administration.
