Pros

University of Edinburgh has an excellent international reputation in many fields, as well as top notch facilities and exceptional colleagues. It is located in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, where living expenses are reasonable.

Cons

Management could be more career-supportive, and bridging money between grants can be difficult to obtain. Campus culture can be behind in social equality at times.

Advice to Management

Management could be more career-supportive, provide more useful training and bridging money between grants. Social equality issues (race, nationality, gender, orientation, religion) should be actively addressed.
