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

Pros

GOod training courses provided for free by many schools of UCL. Qualities are good in general, and they provide you with cerfiticate at the end. many courses are ran few times a year. Good opportunity to learn areas which you are not familiar with

Cons

The employment process is long, too much bureaucracy. If you are in a rush to start you work, you might get dissapointed

Advice to Management

Please improve the overall Information Service (in London Centre for Nanotechnology) and this overly bureaucratic environment. Hiring a technician will definitely be beneficial for students, as well as staffs
