    Pros

    Good pay, holiday and other conditions and convenient location.

    Cons

    Growth through merger and acquisitions in the HE/Research sector causes a lot of headaches. UCL has had an aggressive expansion policy without the internal flexibility, finances and cut-throat decision making to really work.

    I have been working at University College London full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good and skilled workers, central London location, good academic reputation, chance to get involved in interesting projects

    Cons

    Bad management lots of long term staff leaving terrible atmosphere in central IT department, lack of innovation and strategy

    Advice to Management

    Move on, listen to staff more.
