It was nice and easy work, although it could be monotonous at times. Overall, a good experience and satisfactory pay.

I worked at University of Exeter as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Self-directed work that I could do from home or while travelling. I could work whenever and wherever I wanted from, provided I had access to the internet.

Cons

Too little contact from supervisors regarding project deadlines or feedback regarding submitted works.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better supervision of project progression would be helpful in the future to incentivize work. Pay was good, but not excellent so perhaps some improvements on that front or more subsidies for travel or housing (for those that needed to attend training workshops in Exeter).
