    I have been working at University of Birmingham as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great university, I spent 8 years there as a student before working here after going away elsewhere. The campus is beautiful, and calm and peaceful with an academic feel. Everyone is friendly, it has a great reputation and does some truly great science.

    Cons

    As with all academic jobs it is difficult to fine a permanent position here but that's to be expected. The pay is average for the type of work but not low. I honestly find it tricky to find any downsides.

    Advice to Management

    extra guidance to non permanent members of staff would be good.


  2. "I have had a lot of support from the staff."
