    Current Employee - Research Fellow 

    I have been working at University College London full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Brilliant people and high research standards. Diverse and supportive; offers opportunities to engage in non academic research and partnerships, good launchpad for non-academic work

    Cons

    Experience depends on department or line manager. Some taks are done by underpaid persons on temporary contracts instead of full-time academic positions

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep the best people, offer better support to juniour members who are ambitious and want to have impact in addition to doing good research.
