  • Sick Pay  (5 comments)

    “The sick pay is limited but flexible and relatively high. I never had to take use of it due to my very flexible working times, but I heard from...”

    Sick leave, annual leave, pension.

    The good thing about benefits is the NEST Pension scheme. The University contributes up to 13% on top to the scheme which is a lot higher than UK average and the requested minimum.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Demonstrator in Glasgow, Scotland

    I can really see any best or worst thing about the whole package. It is a flexible contract

  • 26 Apr 2018

    Good company to work for but no career path

  • 25 Nov 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former PhD Student in Glasgow, Scotland

    The Univestiy of Glasgow covers travel and costs relating to the job. Courses which benefit the job are also available and covered by the University research group.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current HoSA in Glasgow, Scotland

    The working environment is good, but the benefits package does not compare with many in the private sector.

  • 24 Sep 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Research Assistant in Glasgow, Scotland

    Working based on the hours that were funded by a funding organisation, so very flexible, could come in and out of office and track the hours worked.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Postdoctoral Research Associate in Glasgow, Scotland

    The holiday entitlement was very good at 6 weeks per year, and the final salary pension scheme for existing employers was very generous (I think new entrants may have a worse deal now). The maternity scheme was more generous than at many companies.
