The ISS pension scheme is generous, although it undergoes reviews and benefits (e.g. employer match will be further reduced). Flexible working hours is a definitely a plus
The pension scheme. Although this is now a common problem across the United Kingdom. UCL is a great place otherwise.
Sick pay is the best thing

It's a PhD stipend so pretty much the same as anywhere.
