    It's grand,

    Researcher (Current Employee) Cork (Ireland)

    ProsCork is a nice city to live in, lots of character, everything's convenient. If you can get established here it offers a great quality of life. There are good people here doing some fantastic work, and it would be nice if they had more support from the institution in general

    ConsNot enough investment or proper planning in infrastructure makes it a frustrating place to work, and there is a risk that good people are becoming demoralised.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry reinvigorating the teaching and research programmes by providing genuine opportunities for career development for aspiring staff

    Very Good

    PhD Student (Current Employee)

    ProsUniversity College Cork has great people and great clubs for students and Staff alike. I would definitely recommend this as a place to work

    ConsThere are probably too many layers of general admin in the college. Makes knowing where to go to get things done outside your department quite difficult

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe admin side of the college should be modernized and streamlined to facilitate quicker decision making. I feel this would free up a lot of peoples time and reduce stress levels when looking to do things outside your departmental remit.
