    I worked at University of Cambridge (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The high level of expertise at the institution and the interesting research are the key highlights of the university. A very friendly work atmosphere and beautiful city adds to the charm

    Cons

    It can often be a challenge and the place does not always offer you a good framework if you like a well structured 9-5 pattern of work. The admin and IT teams can often be difficult to deal with or over-stretched.

    Advice to Management

    Get the administrative side more integrated with the academic side. IT admins work better when more embedded in the research groups like lab technicians.
