    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Fellow 

    I have been working at University of Manchester full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Big prestigious university. Relatively easy to attract a grant. Abundance of equipment. In middle of a vibrant city. Money is available for IP protection, spin offs.

    Lack of technical staff support. Culture of solving problems by delegating down the ladder. Environment can be a bit unsociable, but depends on the research group/department. Work-life balance is out the window.
