    The pension scheme is wonderful and generously matched, very generous holidays, bicycle purchase scheme, flexible hours, work at home possibilities, amazing facilities for food, libraries, sport, access to free courses, and a beautiful campus.

    Great number of holidays, cycle scheme

  • 26 Apr 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Edinburgh, Scotland

    Salary sacrifice and employer pension contribution good. Cycle to work scheme is supported but lack of covered bike storage is a pain. Lots of annual leave but you don't get bank holidays or religious holidays off by default, they're built in to the leave allowance.
