    I have been working at University of Edinburgh full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunities for professional training and knowledge gain. Wonderful city, campus and surrounding areas. Good working environment.

    Cons

    Needs active search for opportunities. Administration, especially finances is entirely overwhelmed with their workload and hence quality and service suffers drastically. Personal growth in science is difficult and support by the school is limited. They give good consulting, but funding and monetary support appear to be Gentlemen's Club and political tools rather than genuine offers.

    Advice to Management

    be thorough and stick to your decisions. Improve staff development including comprehensible salary adjustments
