      UCL has the best professors in London and leading departments across disciplines.

      Stable job with great benefits

      Oct 18, 2021 - Administrative Assistant 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      As with many other universities, the work is very regimented and it's very clear what everyone's responsibilities are. Unions are strong, benefits and pension are good and the atmosphere is very progressive and inclusive.

      Cons

      Work can get monotone and it's hard to change or implement anything new - things are very slow to change and there are many, many levels of bureaucracy. Perhaps this is a necessity and how things are at all institutions of this size, but I imagine it's possible to streamline a lot of the work we have to do.
