    Pros

    World leading university in the heart of London. Very flexible working hours. Able to work from home when not teaching.

    Cons

    Expensive to live in or around London and the London allowance isn't anywhere near enough to make up for this. Some issues with status of teaching fellows: we often get "missed" as we're not considered academics, and are not admin/managerial staff either.

    Advice to Management

    Please re-look at "teaching-track" career progression, in line with other Russell group universities.


  2. "Stimulating, supportive and intellectually-driven work environment"
