    Pros

    UCL offers excellent and continual training opportunities for staff. Dedicated to equal opportunities for staff. Excellent links to industry and private practice.

    Cons

    Salary in academia is rather low. There should be staff subsidised travel of some sort for those who have to commute to work.

    Advice to Management

    Set up loan scheme for beginners or new graduates for travel cost for the first few months. Implement a bonus scheme for employees.

    Pros

    Great location, good facilities, one of the best universities in the world.

    Cons

    Determined to build their IT systems in house, it doesn't work. Systems don't communicate well meaning departments don't communicate which each other well. Along with poor administration everything seems to take forever.
