    I have been working at Loughborough University

    Pros

    Good links with industry, so some networking can provide with industrial partners for research proposals. Very competitive with other universities, hence there is always a motivation, which can be really good.

    Cons

    Some departments can be biased towards some research groups, specially those which are considered the "strength of the department". So if you are in the strength groups, you would love working here, but if you are not it can be quite difficult to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing in particular.
