Good place to work

Research Fellow (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsEasy going, well paid, lots of training on offer, very understanding of needs, managers were generally good people

ConsFor me there didn't seem to be any kind of structure or career path, while simultaneously no opportunities to make own decisions, apply for grants, begin own work. Always seemed to be wandering from one project to another, without any capacity to decide own future or knowledge of what the next one might be. Meant few first author publications possible

Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve more staff in decision making at all stages

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    London, England (UK)

    I worked at University College London full-time for more than a year


    Pros: If you know what you want, and why you're in academia - it's a great place to work. London… Cons: The cons are more related to post-doc life in general.… Advice to Senior Management: Post-docs, research associates, what ever you call them are the work… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
