Featured Review

Current Employee - PhD Student

I have been working at University of Cambridge full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Well funded institution: research never/rarely limited by financial constraints - Intelligent and hard-working students and faculty - College administration is very supportive; genuinely seem to... prioritize student welfare (St John's)

Cons

- Bureaucracy at Departmental and University levels: degree time is quite rigid, mechanisms to extend/intermit can be slow and tedious

Current Employee - Senior Management

I have been working at QS Quacquarelli Symonds Limited full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Entrepreneurial Spirit Never Dull Good Social Scene Extremely International (Travel Opportunities) Increasingly well known brand Education sector

Cons

Some systems are not as they might be in a larger company Too many new ideas disrupting focus

Advice to Management

There have been a lot of positive changes over the past couple of years, but it's necessary to keep up the positive trajectory and try and ensure a consistency of engagement and experience in all... roles in all locations.
