Current Employee - Research Assistant in London, England

I have been working at University College London full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great research going on, lots of talented scientists and students, good seminar series enabling one to keep track of work in other fields.

Cons

Labs feel isolated from each other, often long hours and working at weekends. Things take a very long time to get done

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do more to make individual labs feel part of the same department

    I worked at University College London full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy going, well paid, lots of training on offer, very understanding of needs, managers were generally good people

    Cons

    For me there didn't seem to be any kind of structure or career path, while simultaneously no opportunities to make own decisions, apply for grants, begin own work. Always seemed to be wandering from one project to another, without any capacity to decide own future or knowledge of what the next one might be. Meant few first author publications possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve more staff in decision making at all stages
