    Positive Outlook

    I worked at University of Dundee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment. Research facilities are top class with excellent colleagues to collaborate with. Good benefits, especially if you are going to stay there long term.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are few in the UK if you wish to stay in academia. If you don't have fellowships from the beginning, your growth will undoubtedly be stunted. This is not specific to the university, though, but common throughout the UK.

    Advice to Management

    It's ok to say postdoctoral researchers must also undergo regular appraisals but unless you are able to provide them with the ability to apply for grants (not just fellowships), then you're blowing hot air. That's one change you will have to incorporate if you are to truly be the "best place to work".

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Dundee (Dundee, Scotland (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was greeted at the reception by an existing team member, shown around the offices, offered water and then shown into the interview room where there was a panel of 3. The panel members introduced themselves, explained what form the interview questions would take.
