Overall reviews at Imperial College London
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.

Das Arbeitsumfeld am Imperial College London ist sehr interessant und hochmotivierend.
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.

A typical day was administration, working hard, but getting some rewarding breaks.
I learned about professionalism in the workplace and developed my communication and organisational skills.
Managers were fabulous and supportive.
Co-workers were great, made a lot of good friends.
Hardest part of the job was - at a push I would say the salary (we all wish we earned more!). But it wasn't too bad.
Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the results of my hard work and seeing tasks through to completion.
Typical day – supporting chefs , helping food preparation before service starts , making sure all food counters have enough food backup ,Basically food runner responsibilities. keeping kitchen at standard hygiene levels including deep cleaning. supporting events doing set-up by the plan.
What I learned - able to organize yourself time, work fast and efficiency, mentoring the new starters.
Management- you can't progress from your position.
Workplace culture - One of the best part of this job everyone is friendly , helping each others at any time, you don't feel pushed away or different. everyone appreciating people at work .
The hardest part of the job - our kitchen supports events and junctions of which can be included more than 800x people. per week we have 3-4 times events. before events we receive the set-up plan which we take kitchen porters to help up and giving basic training about lifting heavy stuff and all about hazard.
The most enjoyable part of the job - you get meet good people and make friends quickly , working for a while makes learn lots of things.

Very professional environment. Exectuive Team is focused on the welfare of employees.
Imperial College London Diabetes Center or ICLDC is a very good place to work. People are friendly and professional, the managers are concerned about the welfare of employees and how to improve the benefits they can provide the employees.
ProsWe have monthly outdoor staff activity, We have free lunch when we meet the targets, We have yearly bonus and increment, We have good insurance coverage.
ConsWe are affected by the Emiratization program of the UAE government, reason for me to look for another employment.
Excellent career progression facilities
A great place to work. Staff regularly attend workshops and development programmes.
Opportunity to attend international conferences and meetings to develop skills.
Arrive 10 minutes before the start of the shift.
User-Friendly and safe software to help you while contacting alumni
Learn about Imperial donation schemes at training weekend.
My job was to ask alumni if they want to donate in college
Friendly supervisors, whenever I had a problem always there to help
Serious and high-level research environment.
I worked for over seven years and across four different roles within the college. My experience varied from department to department but as a dedicated Research Manager I found that opportunities to learn above pay grade were always available when one showed competency, and subsequently higher paid positions were always available if one was willing to move between departments.
ProsAmbitious and competent people can advance and flourish in an environment like Imperial.
ConsPolicy and process are somewhat complex and require time to learn and navigate.
