I worked at Trinity College Dublin part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I gained experience when I was working towards my doctorate in teaching and in the year immediately following. Because I was already known to my colleagues I had lots of support within my department, and I had students who wanted to be there.

Cons

As in most universities, the paperwork required to get paid in a timely manner was outdated and an obstacle. Better attendance by supervisors in lectures would give credence to the class as well.

Advice to Management

Treat your adjuncts kindly in this tough economic climate. It seems we're here to stay until the economy recovers.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Trinity College Dublin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My fellowship (EMPOWER) is very good and gives you complete freedom to pursue an independent research program

    Cons

    Ireland is not doing great because of the crisis. Funding for science has been cut a lot. There is little hope to get a permanent position

    I worked at Trinity College Dublin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to do research - I was working on a european research project. Great if you are doing a PhD at the same time like I was.

    Cons

    Administration - boss was unstructured and highly emotional. Made honest communication impossible and the experience much harder to manage than it should have been. Also put a lot of unneeded stress into my life.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor managers and have a blind review of research management
