    Pros

    Challenging work, with a clear purpose. Freedom in research and approach you decide to take Building is a wonderful environment, lot of utilities Generous holidays

    Cons

    Reviews seem to be very team dependent, so YMMV Can be busy/late around critical times (Brexit etc), but this is more than compensated given the flexi-time arrangements. Directorates may also be given a day off as compensation etc Wages are good and raises are reliable, however they grow slowly compared to private sector
