productive and fun workplace
one of the best job sites where I feel completely comfortable, for the values, respect, equality, and great opportunities it offers is Imperial College London.
Cleaner Operative in North Acton, Greater London
it's a good job, the can get stressful sometimes but it is mostly just a fast-paced workspace, you have a team to work with and everything goes by well. it has nothing special about it but no cons either.
Postdoctoral Research Associate in London
Imperial College Hammersmith Campus is not a great place to work
The environment is not research staff friendly and the facilities you get for your research depends on how rich your lab is. There is hardly any shared equipment. They don't care for their employees. You won't feel a sense of community and the HR system is super slow with a lot of bureaucracy. Most of the postdocs there are frustrated and stuck at the same position for years.The location of the Hammersmith campus is really bad there is nothing nearby and it's not safe at night. The labs are not well maintained. If you are joining as a researcher you will end up doing a lot of admin work. The professors and senior leaders are not approachable at all. The environment is not friendly and is rather hostile (if your PI is great then you might be better off).
Systems Officer in London
Best professional experience so far
Although a maternity cover contract, this was without a doubt the year I grew most professionally. I had everything I needed to further develop my skills and learn new ones: access to courses online, paid courses and a huge variety of evening classes that the college offers. Also, great staff all around me, my manager was also extremely supportive and everyone else across the college more than helpful and welcoming with any queries I had. There is a big culture of personal growth and support (at least in the department I worked in). There are also a lot of opportunities for different roles across faculty and departments, in my case I've had to relocate out of London so missed on some.
Team Leader in London, Greater London
