      Pros

      Imperial College has great research facilities, laboratories and resources. The work environment is quite pleasant and very collaborative. The graduate school courses and career progress support are excellent

      Cons

      Administration can be sometimes slow and inaccurate. The facilities, instruments and buildings sometimes present engineering problems that require several days to be fixed. Perhaps a increased attention to work-life balance could be implemented
