    StarStarStarStarStar Former Postdoctoral Researcher in Edinburgh, Scotland

    no childcare support at all - have to stay with fever baby and boss urge me to work on the second day boss don't respect staff - 1) seems plenty of annual leave ( 36 days) however at least several bosses (me and my colleagues) will say something to make you feel guilty if you take more than 1 week of holiday. 2) boss don't care about whether your long time no see family is visiting or not even i took annual leave, just ask you to work 3)it is unfair among colleagues, boss don't push local staff as much as international staff (racist/bias)
