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

Pros

Good environment overall. The university or the societies that belong to it or the SIPBS institute are interested in making the adaptation easy and provide a good international exchange between students at a social and professional/ research level. Stipends and demonstration salaries always payed on time.

Cons

The registration process to the university can be quite bureaucratic making the start for students at times difficult. The university has several departments and the SIPBS itself has a lot of administrators and dealing with all those people and knowing who to go to to take care of a problem can be at times tricky.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the registration process and services in general less bureaucratic and more straight forward.

    I have been working at University of Strathclyde as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good opportunities for an internal candidate, there are lots of areas/projects which you can and will be asked to help out on which can then lead into other job roles. This makes for a stimulating and flexible working environment and even if only taken on for a set period this means that often the contract is extended to a full time basis, or another opportunity appears.

    Cons

    HR can be a little on the slow side with the initial paperwork but this was mitigated to a certain degree in my case by their flexibility.
