    I worked at University of Strathclyde as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was very satisfied with the staff, everyone was friendly, open and helpful, all of the technical problems were solved immediately. Flexible hours to work, I could even work from home, the most important is to meet the deadlines. Each trainee got tasks, that fit best to his personality. We got very good salary and help in every issue.

    Cons

    There were no downsides, i was totally satisfied.

    Current Employee - PhD Student in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    I have been working at University of Strathclyde full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good environment overall. The university or the societies that belong to it or the SIPBS institute are interested in making the adaptation easy and provide a good international exchange between students at a social and professional/ research level. Stipends and demonstration salaries always payed on time.

    Cons

    The registration process to the university can be quite bureaucratic making the start for students at times difficult. The university has several departments and the SIPBS itself has a lot of administrators and dealing with all those people and knowing who to go to to take care of a problem can be at times tricky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the registration process and services in general less bureaucratic and more straight forward.
