    Pros

    Great cultural mix of professionals. Opportunities exist to make life-long friends as well as work acquaintances. Make the most of these opportunities!

    Cons

    Postgraduate post holders are often expected to work late to finish up once the permanent staff have gone for the day.

    Advice to Management

    Some acknowledgement that junior staff actually help run the facility wouldn't go astray.
