I have been working at University of Leeds full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Flexible work hours in a youthful working culture with very long holidays. Exciting cutting edge research institution and a real feeling of doing work of international value

Cons

Poor support structures (finance, computing). Support staff are excellent but the structures have not been designed to assist/benefit the staff.
Lack of foresight in interdisciplinary activity.
