    I have been working at Aston University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly environment to work, good teams, interesting project. You have freedom to plan your work, as long as you are productive, there is no need to be there from 9am to 5pm

    Cons

    Sometime the labs are busy, so you have to wait to get access to the labs. The office is small as well so you need to share the office with 4-5 other postdocs
