        I have been working at University of Bristol full-time

        Pros

        excellent students; first-rate facilities; strong support for research; great location.

        Cons

        professorial pay inequalities seem to be getting worse due to external hiring to senior roles and resulting negotiating clout.

        Advice to Management

        Need to resolve professorial salary inequalities. The system, as elsewhere, relies on lack of transparency and people being in the dark. It shouldn't rely on how much I have the hutzpah to negotiate.
