    I have been working at St George's University full-time

    Pros

    St George's is a friendly place to work. It's nice to feel part of a mission to train future healthcare professionals and solve healthcare challenges.
    Holiday allowances are generous.

    Cons

    Processes can be slow and bureaucratic, and it's hard to get agreement on decisions to effect change.
    Certain departments are either under-staffed or under-skilled which can have knock-on effects for other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the staff in question for their input before making unilateral decisions. They may have something to contribute.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at St George's University (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's quite a laid back atmosphere, as long as you get your work done, everything is fine. You can work flexibly if you'd want to

    Cons

    Working in academia is slow. If you're after a fast-paced environment, do not consider a research career.

    Advice to Management

    A little bit more mentoring wouldn't harm anyone.

    I worked at St George's University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of very nice people to work with
    Great IT support
    Fully operational clinical research facility
    Motivated and keen young research team
    Culture of research is growing

    Cons

    Poor HR support
    Fragmented approach to clinical research
    Lots of localised empire building
    High turn over of staff

    Advice to Management

    Need a senior manager to grab hold of the research activity and drive it rather than rely on the nursing staff to not only delivery but manage and promote research.
    Greater investment in infrastructure and staff required

    Pros

    Good people, very willing and committed; interesting challenges; academic environment

    Better structure in decision making; chief executive needed; better management of carry-through needed.
