    I worked at Trinity College Dublin (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff is always very welcoming.
    Environment and colleagues are very respectful, very diverse and accepting.
    Good atmosphere, plenty of events taking place, support services are very helpful.

    Cons

    Favouritism (all depending on department).
    Many administrative tasks still have to be completed in paper form.
    Overall work conditions and benefits are ok but no sense that Trinity is really looking out for its employees or fostering talent. It can be frustrating dealing with slow bureaucracy and self-centric approach. Management can be quite disastrous.

    Advice to Management

    Internal mobility and progression of staff needs to be considered. Admin staff need to be better valued.
