    I have been working at University of York part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good amount of training was provided, which I feel will be useful in my future good applications. I was also given the flexibility of choosing which modules I wanted to teach.

    Cons

    Payment for preparing tutorials or marking can be quite tight, hence I sometimes took more time in preparation or giving feedback when marking that I was not paid for.

    I have been working at University of York full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The department has good facilities and the people are friendly. Also within the department there is an early careers researchers forum that organises academic training events and social events for everyone in the department - this was great for meeting new people when I arrived. The University is very close to the city, and York is a lovely place.

    Cons

    There aren't really many cons. Some of the PhD offices are small (3-4 people) but others are bigger (6-8 people) which some people may dislike.
