      Pros

      Flexible working, great supportive team and colleagues, great holiday leave.

      Cons

      Pay is not brilliant, time pressures at times of exam boards and assessment committees and having to take on a heavier workload. Work can be boring, repetitive and not much opportunity to develop skills or do courses/training that is in line with career goals e.g. I would like to do project management but there are no certification and training courses available for this (unless you're already doing this as a job and it's relevant to your work responsibilities).
