I have been working at University of Bristol full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great City, University centrally located (Except for Vets), good pension, reasonable pay, people like to stay on here. Okay relocation packages.

Cons

Excessive use of contracts, needs further careers support for contract workers and less management change schemes! Statuatory minimum redundancy. At certain grades only external candidates are genuinely considered except for a few very lucky exceptions. Housing expensive and mixed quality.
