    1) Great research environment 2) Lots of very smart people around 3) London is a dream place to live

    Cons

    1) Salary is low for someone with a PhD 2) London is amazing but it is also expensive 3) Limited career progression. So, if you're anything less than a lecturer, you need to be constantly planning your next step somewhere else to avoid career stagnation.
