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

    Pros

    - Nicely located - Support staff always helpful - Some academics are very good and helpful

    Cons

    Limited to the School of Computing Science: - Most other academics either over the hill, or bullies, or both - Poisonous atmosphere among academics - Non-academic staff are exploited, then discarded - Lots of talk about career opportunities, but the grass is always greener elsewhere - Is far to full of itself, with very precious little to show for it
