    Current Employee - PhD Student 

    I have been working at University of Leicester full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The freedom. If you are motivated and self driven it’s lovely to be your own boss.

    Cons

    A lot of freedom to do as you see best. However, professors are too busy to help you with the in-depth technical nature of a project. If you want to do a phd make sure you get a project with a Dr. who is active in research as they will give you much more of their time.
