Friendly environment
Nationality and friendly people. Work day is relaxing and flexible to start early or late completing 7.5 hours daily with 1 hour lunch. The company give opportunity to learn about robotics, mechanical, electrical and electronic, and software engineering projects. Management need a little bit more organising but due to the complex of the project is not bad at all. Friendly group go to do social drink after work.

Excellent employer
Firm but fair, although the work load differs greatly from post to post, on the whole there is an appreciation for all employees. Focus is on education and research, all roles support this.

Active, busy and fun workplace
The interview was simple yet effective, same with the training. Every day while working, there would be something that could come up, but your team would always help to sort it with you. Another avenue to improve ya social skills and work as a team. There is a lot of camaraderie throughout all levels and it is a safe place to work.

A place for creative and ambitious scientists
Top-quality science, friendly staff, great collaborations, teaching opportunities, excellent facilities...truly a place for creative and ambitious scientists.
Such a positive experience was also enabled by the head of my group.


The main problem (generally in academia) is lacking the permanent positions for postdocs.

Great summer school
Truly had an amazing time in a Imperial College London in their Global Summer school. It was really interesting to learn more about engineering and meet people from around the world. I loved being able to interact with Imperial College students and professors.

Good
As a PhD student I've always received good supervision. My day is long and hard, but I enjoy working here. Imperial College London are demanding, so it can be stressful.

interesting place to work
During 6 years at Imperial, I have learnt a lot of skills: multitasking, working to meet deadlines.
The hardest part was to adjust to everyone's work habits.


The best part is to be engaged into different projects.

Productive and fun workplace
In this role I learnt a number of key skills needed to upgrade myself as a productive and efficient test Analyst as data is key in this environment. Typical tasks through my day to day work include working on my task and working within a team. This position taught me the importance of punctuality, teamwork and communication within the workplace.

An Exceptionally unique and friendly place to work.
There are many friendly and interesting people to meet and talk to, it is definitely more of a social place to work. There is a lot for anyone to learn there, even as an employee it is a place you work and learn more about your field.

Ill organised but Third Party Employer
Was employed the day before the job began, arrived to find that all 3 people in attendance were informed it was to be teaching assistance, with no teacher present.

Once the kinks were ironed out, became a fairly enjoyable way to earn good money for little work.
Pros
Good Money
Cons
Ill managed
