Great short-term place to work but few long-term opportunities

Research Associate (Current Employee) Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

ProsGreat resources (buildings, libraries, facilities, etc), really smart people, chance to make high-powered connections, lots of arts and cultural stuff going on. Good pension, maternity, etc benefits.

ConsLow salaries compared to industry, nonexistent opportunities for promotion or even permanent post as RA, small town, can be isolating if not student or fellow.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide career path for postdocs to advance. Make it easier for postdocs to become members of colleges.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
