Neutral Outlook

I have been working at University of Southampton as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

In some departments the research environment is very vital and full of ideas. Most of the research/support staff are nice people. Availability of research equipment is impressive.

Cons

The University has dramatically reduced the support staff so sometimes it takes long time to have things done due to overload on the remaining ones.

The University should invest more for keeping their good researchers with longer time perspectives for them.

Advice to Management

Should invest in more long term (5 years minimum) employment for research staff to allow them plan and develop their research agenda.
