Laboratory and field worker (Former Employee) –  Harpenden, Hertfordshire12 September 2018
My work at Rothamsted consisted of a variety of sample processing tasks completed whilst working in different departments as a summer laboratory and field worker over a number of years. This work could at times become monotonous but my colleagues were friendly and the hours flexible so it was overall a good experience.

A great place to work
Senior scientific research assistant (Former Employee) –  Harpenden, Hertfordshire5 February 2017
A great place to work. Rothamsted has a fantastic friendly atmosphere. It has great facilities with an onsite bar, gym, tennis courts, nursery etc. The pay and job security could be better, but these are a result of scientific project driven funding, rather than a reflection of Rothamsted itself.
