    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at University of Bristol for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a great working environment and employers are treated fairly. The school of chemistry counts with a wide range of facilities, and it is always easy to collaborate with other researchers. The institution is just big enough that you will be able to know most of the researchers working there.

    Cons

    One of the biggest downsides is that the University is almost in the middle of the city, and therefore it is always difficult to find affordable rent. It is a somewhat expensive city.

    Pros

    A supportive and encouraging research environment. People are open to interdisciplinary collaboration.

    Cons

    There is little job security for postdoc, while this is not the problem for this Univ. but the problem for the whole academia.

      Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Associate in Bristol, England

      I have been working at University of Bristol full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Bristol is a very nice city and the University of Bristol has a very friendly working environment.

      Cons

      The building that I am working in is a little bit old (almost 20 years), so some minor problems have turn out and needed to be sorted.
