I worked at University of Liverpool

Pros

Lots of money available for travelling to conferences. (I was never denied funding for this.) Open atmosphere, interesting people, pleasant and centrally-located campus.

Cons

Disappointing support of the senate for the universal nature of universities, namely the proposed closing of certain academic departments in 2008/9 due to their lack of research funding income.

Lack of career support for PhD/RA researchers (but this is an issue common to most universities).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Within any organisation there are profitable and unprofitable departments, and the former have to support the latter or else the whole organisation is threatened.

Some "career gap funding" for PhD/RA researchers, funded by the university, would keep talented researchers at the university while applying for grants and continuing to contribute to the academic standing of the university.

    Pros

    They are active and professional; and I think you will be rewarded with wonderful benefits and support. They provide excellent training and mentoring program.

    Cons

    The organization is 'big' worldwide, promotions from within may be a little slow forthcoming but doing your best to educate the students is satisfying and rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is well positioned and should established offices worldwide for ease of administration and to prevent bottleneck.
