    I worked at University of Cambridge part-time

    Pros

    Libraries
    Church service
    Formal dinners/ balls
    Methods training
    Beautiful architecture, gorgeous gardens/surroundings and rich historical heritage

    Cons

    Students-to-faculty ratio for grads very high leading to low face-time/ interactions with faculty

    Advice to Management

    Better maintenance of facilities and upgrading (like there's not enough slots to plug in your laptop in classrooms in several buildings)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Cambridge in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through email. Recommend checking the website jobs.cam.ac.uk. Got back to me for an interview a 7-10 days post the submission deadline. Interview was then 14 days after.

    Panel of interviewers. Questions ranged from detailed questions about the post, specifics on my CV, what I would do in different scenarios with demanding clients, ability to reply quickly to emails, and future goals.
