Quite interesting

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Loughborough, England (UK)

I have been working at Loughborough University

ProsExcellent scenery and sporting facility. Quite a friendly environment with enormous amount of team work. State of the art engineering facility.

ConsJob insecurity is high. Very quiet and lonely town. Little encouragement about good work done. Unnecessary training courses that waste productive time.

Advice to Senior Managementmaintain the facility on ground. Encourage fellow researchers more about god work done. Be more concerned by researcher's well being.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

A good place to work

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

I have been working at Loughborough University

ProsGood links with industry, so some networking can provide with industrial partners for research proposals. Very competitive with other universities, hence there is always a motivation, which can be really good.

ConsSome departments can be biased towards some research groups, specially those which are considered the "strength of the department". So if you are in the strength groups, you would love working here, but if you are not it can be quite difficult to survive.

Advice to Senior ManagementNothing in particular.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
