I have been working at Imperial College London

Pros

As a researcher at Imperial you have the opportunity to work and collaborate with very talented colleagues in a stimulating environment. Very good training programs and courses. Flexible working hours.

Cons

Professors and PI's often lack very basic management and leadership skills. Working conditions and opportunities often varies a lot between different labs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The managing skills and leadership skills of Professor's and PI's should be reviewed on a regular basis. Online questionnaires where employers can rate their PI's based on research quality, support, professional development and managing skills should be offered.

    I worked at Imperial College London

    Pros

    It has relatively more resources and funding compared to other universities in UK, because of the reputation built up, also the big names in the field.

    Cons

    It's very competitive in terms of promotion or career progression. Many keep working as Research Associate, and it's very difficult to progress further as permanent staff
