      Pros

      Friendly colleagues, cafe, nice science park environment. Lovely to be on campus. Flexible working. On site nursery.

      Cons

      Pay not close to market level, undervalued, unappreciated for those not in the academia side of things. Attempt to build culture is just an exercise. Turnover appears to be higher than other workplaces, usually because of pay or career progression.
