      Unfortunate waste of talents

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexible working; very good reputation and highly "bankable" experience in the future

      Cons

      A highly embedded culture of protecting/putting under the rug bad management and staff interactions. highly competitive; lacks team-spirit and support of personal development opportunities. Supposedly trying to address these issues at the top level, let's see how it goes. Fingers crossed things will indeed change, there is so much wasted intellectual and collective talents there!

      Tough on Students but Take Care of Staff

      Aug 4, 2019 - UROP Student in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexible working hours, standard base academic pay for low experience positions, great pay and lifestyle for other staff and academic positions, not to mention to work on or support absolutely cutting edge research. Good culture for staff but definitely not always for students.

      Cons

      Cons are mostly about student well being, less of a focus on teaching and more on research might be a con for some. Any salary/pensions cons tend to be because of nation wide factors coming from government policy and academia standards.
