    Pros

    Flexible hours and a lot of travel benefits (at least in the research group I belonged to)

    Cons

    Pay beneath of what I expected. But in a way the other benefits compensated.

    Pros

    It has a great central location. It is a very esteemed university, so you are surrounded by high-quality students and staff members (for the most part).

    Cons

    The university sometimes seems a bit fragmented, and no one knows what anyone else is doing. It is difficult to sort out administrative work within the university.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would strive to provide more part-time jobs for university students while they are studying at the university. It is difficult for students, particularly research students, to find a job; the university is missing out on a pool of talent!
