    I have been working at University College Cork part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to use all the academic utilities like library, printing, etc. which is great when you're doing research. The work is no too tedious and the pay is decent according to the pay levels here. The professors offer help, and are very friendly. The students are helpful and understanding as well.

    Cons

    Nothing exciting or challenging as the work is merely assisting the ongoings in the lab.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some more interesting work and challenges to the students.

    Pros

    Convenient working hours - flexible and easy to maintain a work life balance around same. Good working facilities and beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Perhaps could be viewed as a somewhat beaurocratic environment where performance reviews are rigorously in place across departments - but alas, such is the nature of most educational institutions.
