    Pros

    Excellent, world-class and stimulating research environment. Good facilities and excellent support and guidance from from the research management (although this can be somewhat group dependent - maybe I was lucky). Typically limited duration contracts, but good once you get on the rolling grants - in my experience, if you're any good, the management will do amazing feats of juggling to keep you regardless of funding problems.

    Cons

    Limited chance of career advancement in research-only - as normal, to advance, you need to teach and the term time load can be rather high (supervision and not much else) - although some opportunities do exist.

    Advice to Management

    In general, good job! Keep a eye on the teaching time load to ensure the university can keep its world-class research status. More opportunities for research-only posts (and advancement there) would be welcome (although noted that teaching is the primary function of universities!)
