I worked at University College London full-time for more than a year

Pros

If you know what you want, and why you're in academia - it's a great place to work. London as a city is unbeatable. But make sure you work with the right people, who can get you places...

Cons

The cons are more related to post-doc life in general. Long hours, not enough recognition, hard to move up the ladder.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Post-docs, research associates, what ever you call them are the work horses of any research-centric institution. Treat them and reward them accordingly!

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, good public sector salary scheme, pension scheme, central location, lively university campus, good lunch facilities, good social facilities for staff.

    Some IT hardware and software problematical and in need of updating, communication with some members of management staff was too limited, staff were sent on too many training programmes that were unnecessary.

    Pros

    its a multicultural university where the environment is most apt for development. hence a lifetime experience for any individual to study at such a place.

    Cons

    the university is spread all over the city and thus its hard to travel to different classrooms at different times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more career services and fair for the students.
