Convinced me to leave Southampton

Research Associate (Current Employee) Southampton, England (UK)

ProsGood engineering facilities when they work. Nice central campus with pretty gardens. Generous vacation allowance. Bus station on campus allowing for easy transportation links to city centre, airport, and London.

ConsAdministration does not take ownership of administrative tasks. Line managers are not suitably trained. Work/life balance is poor and is not taken into consideration by management. For early career researchers there is very little chance for future progression.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus less on strategy and pay more attention to making staff happier.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
