    I have been working at Imperial College London full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Prestigious and big employer with excellent reputation for research
    Good research facilities
    Excellent opportunity for learning and development
    Nice colleagues, diverse, open-minded and friendly
    Intellectually stimulating atmosphere, lots of things are going on
    Flexible working hours

    Cons

    Lack of career progression, to move up you need to move out.
    Loyalty to institution is not valued and is seen as a liability and inability
    Bullying, intimidation and no job security. After 4 years as a postdoc you become permanent and your contract could be terminated with 1 month notice and barely 1 month pay. This creates a vial atmosphere of dependency and bullying. Lots of nasty things are going behind the lab doors and the Institute doesn't care as long as PI brings in bags of money. It's all about money.
    Sexism - if you are a woman your life is harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask more for feedback and be receptive to feedback. React to bullying and harassment allegations. Even if education is a business it has to have a human face.
