I have been working at Medical Research Council full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Extremely friendly people to work with; time to explore and learn new techniques and technologies; very satisfying projects to work on - that might actually benefit human society in the long run; opportunities for networking.

Cons

At the moment, and for the foreseeable future the HGU will be a building site - the extremely limited parking will soon disappear!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Project Management could be improved.

    I worked at Medical Research Council as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    People are very nice, despite the ambitious athmosphere. The CBU offers great resources and its closeness to the Cambridge University brings an additional range of benefits. Overall I can highly recommend applying to the CBU.

    Cons

    If you are going to undergo a PhD Programme in the CBU, a potential downside is the lack of conference funding. Students are encouraged to seek for funding in the colleges and via their external scholarships, which is fine most of the time.
