    I have been working at University of Edinburgh

    Pros

    Flexible work environment that allows you to work with some of the brightest minds in the world on cutting edge research. Opportunities exist within the University for staff to continuously update their skills or gain new ones by attending free classes in topics ranging from management to business to programming. The University is the heart of a vibrant start up scene in the city.

    Cons

    Some say that Edinburgh is an expensive place to live. The pay although comparable to what other Universities offer is low compared to the private sector. The University administrative parts can be quite bureaucratic sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep on doing what you are doing now. I have no complaints with how the University is run now.

    I have been working at University of Edinburgh

    Pros

    It's a nice place to work while doing postdoctoral research. There are just so many intelligent and friendly people you can't go wrong.

    Cons

    You have to live in Edinburgh to work at the University of Edinburgh, which means you will be suffering through interminable winters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have not advice for management since I did not really have any interactions with management. This means they are probably doing just fine.
