    I worked at Trinity College Dublin part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, friendly management and nice perks in the form of chocolate during long shifts. I worked here to supplement income while studying, and the work isn't difficult.

    Cons

    One of the big downsides was the location, at the top of the GMB, which got pretty hot as the weather warmed up. Another downside was that there was a limit to the hours available and it could get a little monotonous.

    Pros

    Great environment. Dedicated and extremely knowledgeable supervisors and academic staffs. The school's Director of Postgraduate Studies (Alex Schuster) himself is a very friendly and pleasant man. Academic staffs and students are definitely a joy to work and have fun with! Supports to students are incredible and there are always opportunities to grow and improve yourself if you are into academics.

    Cons

    School's office is a bit old and should be refashioned. Gratefully, this is compensated by the efficient staffs they have at the school's office!

    Advice to Management

    Great jobs! If only refurbishment of the school doesnt hinder the college's ambition to maintain its historical landscape. Guess an internal make-over within the school will not do any harm.

    Pros

    Get to learn a lot about research and always stay at the front line! Met many intelligent talented people. It's great if you like to work at your own initiative and your own pace.

    Cons

    The challenge I met was that you have to really 'focus' on your research and get into a minute level and be able discuss like you know it all.

    Advice to Management

    Love it, no complaints!
