    I worked at University of Liverpool full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, for the most part
    Nice new labs.
    Close to bus stops and train stations

    Cons

    Poor management, Small labs, Competition for space.

    Advice to Management

    Higher level management should update at regular intervals as a forum to discuss workflow and balance. My supervisor was incredibly busy, which I enjoyed at first as an independent worker, but it became hugely frustrating to get order forms signed and have the much-needed update meetings.
