Fun workplace
For a young student entering the workplace, Diamond Light Source made sure I felt welcome during my two week stay. During the two weeks I was taught about IT security which I felt I left with a reasonable amount of knowledge about.

Recommended without a doubt
Diamond is a great place to work! You get all sort of benefits that in a private company you couldn't even dream about. Here there is a chance to learn something new every single day, you can learn from experienced engineers, scientists, PhD physicists, highly qualified technical staff and more. There is a career plan that allows you to develop yourself further. Diamond invest a lot of money in training its employees and encourages you to keep learning new skills! One of the best aspects of this company is the people you work with on a daily basis as everyone here is happy and eager to help you by sharing their years of experience with you without hesitation, strengthening your knowledge in a much faster pace than in a private company. On top of that, a very generous pension scheme that is way better than any other company out there makes a big difference when it comes to compare the salaries.

Inspirational workplace, terrible management
Diamond is a great place to work, but managers are typical of science institutions where they've been promoted to a high management grade on the basis of scientific exploits. No mentoring, development and poor on boarding process.
Senior Project / Operations Manager in Chilton, Oxfordshire

could develop people.
relies too much on people not leaving because no one wants to lose the final salary-ish pension.the backlash is that there are lots of uninspired people.
