    I have been working at University of Warwick

    Pros

    Good reputation; cheap housing available; some reputable academics; recent moves to give extra time to those academics who are actually driving research output; good teaching programmes rated very highly nationally.

    Cons

    too many academics who are not pulling their weight in research and thinking they are wonderful minds; extremely bureaucratic, but without giving employees the protection from arbitrary management; severe cost cutting in the wake of the financial crisis; awful working atmosphere with terrible colleagues, esp. in the business school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start recognising excellence and identify the s*** stirrers

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Amazing research by professors.
    Good location just one hr by train from london
    Low cost of living
    Good work exposure
    friendl professors

    Cons

    Meeting the professors is s bit problem as they are mostly busy
    Most of them expect you to know a lot about the subject before you even start the work
    Getting funding from university is a big head ache due to several obligations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to arrange funding soon
    Give them good quality work rather thatn just data entry or data analysis
    Meet often with students to discuss work progress

    Recommends
    Approves of CEO
