Pros

The professionalism in the university is unquestionable. I stays in the best department of the uni as a postdoc. and I enjoy working here.

Cons

Low salary and you can't get anywhere in the career path if you start working as post doc which can be a nightmare later on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better organized finance maybe the way forward, spending too much on facility and less on the personnel who at the end of the day will run all those stuff.

    Pros

    Lots of interesting, busy people, lots going on, main campus on nice park with lots of trees and flowers. Staff seem really engaged with their work. A top-ranking Russell Group university, doing lots of groundbreaking research in all sorts of areas.

    Cons

    For someone on a zero hours contract such as myself, the usual variability of work.
