    I have been working at University of Dundee full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Inexpensive city Small city but quite vibrant (DCA,V&A, cool restaurants...) Good reputation (Life Sciences at least) Beautiful surroundings in Scotland Great potential Some magnificent researchers and groups

    Cons

    No cafeteria on site (Life Sciences) or plans to have one The admin in some divisions are notoriously grumpy/unhelpful A few rotten apples (PIs) make the atmosphere really negative (eg. at seminars) Older PIs run the place and don't allow for younger people to grow/develop The entire IT system is a mess (tons of spam, computers don't operate well, they take long to have OS updates available...)
