I worked at University of Edinburgh full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The school of informatics has been ranked the best in the UK. There are noble prize winners in the university. The staff and also people in the city are welcoming. The quality of life is high compared to London.

Cons

The weather is usually chilly with rare sunshines. Flying from Edinburgh is not as good as flights from London of course.

    The people are amazing; intelligent, highly capable, driven and highly technical.

    Not a great deal of commercial experience. They are primarily academic/research facing so it's challenging to bring commercial clients on board.

    Invest in marketing, PR, messaging, conference presence, more industry facing networking required for success.
