    Force Tyndall to brand itself more strongly as UCC and diversify research areas if possible.
    Restructure budgets at the top.

    Lobby hard with a single voice for an increase in the education budget.

    I have been working at University College Cork

    Pros

    University College Cork has great people and great clubs for students and Staff alike. I would definitely recommend this as a place to work

    Cons

    There are probably too many layers of general admin in the college. Makes knowing where to go to get things done outside your department quite difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The admin side of the college should be modernized and streamlined to facilitate quicker decision making. I feel this would free up a lot of peoples time and reduce stress levels when looking to do things outside your departmental remit.

    I have been working at University College Cork part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get to use all the academic utilities like library, printing, etc. which is great when you're doing research. The work is no too tedious and the pay is decent according to the pay levels here. The professors offer help, and are very friendly. The students are helpful and understanding as well.

    Cons

    Nothing exciting or challenging as the work is merely assisting the ongoings in the lab.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer some more interesting work and challenges to the students.
