I have been working at Trinity College Dublin

Pros

Great resources (equipment, reagents).
Lots of smart people, opportunities to teach or take courses in subjects that might benefit career later on.

Cons

No career progression possibilities for PostDocs. Limited communication between departments. IS Services makes life harder rather than easier. Admin staff are complacent and take months to process anything. Since it is near impossible to get rid of non-performing people in public service, lots of "dead weight" around.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of non-performers.

    I worked at Trinity College Dublin

    Pros

    Worked in a nicely sized lab which wasn't too stressed or competitive, had good communication between all members of the lab and was a friendly work environment. Good support for things I was not familiar with from all people.

    Cons

    My lab was removed from the main campus and I had to get a lot of things sorted out there in terms of paperwork. They could have done without some of the unnecessary red tape and had better office hours to save me time and hassle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make bureaucracy less of an issue for students and workers, communicate more with them as well and stay in touch with their work
