Current Employee - PhD Student

I have been working at University of Edinburgh full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good access to educational training and tools, especially good at preparing you for becoming a full time teacher or lecturer, or organising other staff members. Also very good at preparing you for different career options within full time postgraduate education, or academia

Cons

Very specific teaching styles which have even filtered down to the design of the classrooms often detracts from the student experience, which leaves the teachers feeling ineffectual and underused. Management have been known to try to screw you out of money for no reason.
