    A good place to work

    Research Associate (Current Employee) Loughborough, England

    ProsGood 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.

    ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementNothing in particular.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
