    I have been working at University of Southampton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Freedom, personal growth, excellent equipment and research teams. Campus is very nice, national parks nearby are beautiful. Would consider living in winchester and commuting however

    Cons

    Salary, work-life balance. Local town is quite poor, food on campus is bad, can be quite boring place to work. Not a lot of outside social organisation.

    Former Employee - PhD Student in Southampton, England (UK)

    I worked at University of Southampton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent access to publications, new building/facilities, close knit department. Decent seminar programmes. A few big names in the department

    Cons

    Poor IT support, lack of working space, cannot access some journals (even some high impact ones), not as much technical support as one would like sometimes. Also the hospital lab facilities are old and in great need of updating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more support to researchers - things like a dedicated statistician, full access to ALL the important journals, and spend some money on the outdated hospital facilities.
