I have been working at University of Edinburgh

Pros

University of Edinburgh has an excellent international reputation in many fields, as well as top notch facilities and exceptional colleagues. It is located in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, where living expenses are reasonable.

Cons

Management could be more career-supportive, and bridging money between grants can be difficult to obtain. Campus culture can be behind in social equality at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management could be more career-supportive, provide more useful training and bridging money between grants. Social equality issues (race, nationality, gender, orientation, religion) should be actively addressed.

    Pros

    Edinburgh is a great place to live in. You can walk to work. The working environment is top class. People are friendly.

    Cons

    As a researcher can be very lonely at times. Most communication is done via email. It's easier to burn out if you are not careful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time to hear from your employees how they feel.
