I worked at University College London full-time (More than a year)

Pros

If you know what you want, and why you're in academia - it's a great place to work. London as a city is unbeatable. But make sure you work with the right people, who can get you places...

Cons

The cons are more related to post-doc life in general. Long hours, not enough recognition, hard to move up the ladder.

Advice to Management

Post-docs, research associates, what ever you call them are the work horses of any research-centric institution. Treat them and reward them accordingly!
