Wish I Didn't Have to Leave!

UL has a fantastic work culture, there is a great work/life balance and it is encouraged to take all your annual leave, management is very understanding about medical appointments and family emergencies. There is a solid hybrid work policy. All staff are so friendly and helpful. There are many training opportunities and learning events to attend. The only reason I left was due to relocating but otherwise, I could have seen myself working here for many years and moved up.


Relaxed environment, great location, good pay, high job satisfaction


Lots of downtime between projects, busy campus, limited parking

A very political and bureaucratic environment

Hard to advance when roles are almost always earmarked for someone specific. Lip service is definitely the name of the game. It’s a stagnant environment and will never change because of the group think tank that has been created.


Easy going colleagues


Stagnant culture

Productive and fun place to work

Nice work employees and pay was always right and on time. Always room for job opportunities. Work hours goes off terms and you will know your set hours at start of term.

I found it supportive and helpful

I think it is really a good place to do research and enhance your profile. it is likely that you find yourself in joy but like any academic career, the salary is not really amazing

Thoroughly enjoyable experienceWorking as a teaching assistant

Typical day at work involved teaching labs and tutorials, answering student questions, correcting coursework, communicating with other teaching assistants and lecturers.Most enjoyable part of the job is helping students reach their academic goals and improve their learning experience.


Independence, lots of responsibility, teaching students


No career progression, 2 year contract is maximum, only paid 10 months of the year.

Very collaborative and supportive working team.

Although my job at UL was short (8 months). It was a great experience. I worked under a line manager who understands the importance of a work-life balance and received all the required support needed to excel.


Positive environment to work.


Only wished my contract was longer☹

Fast paced environment

The job is both highly demanding and exciting. I worked there for 2 years and happy I was able to work in close contact with industries. The work environment is friendly and you have freedom to carry out own research and initiatives.

Great place to work

Worked a few positions here due to great advancement opportunities. Helped build up my CV after studying here and would recommend it for anyone. People are friendly. Only down side is the busy college periods at lunch time and parking is difficult, sometimes end up needing to park in paid car park if you can't cycle or get the bus.

orientation coordinator administrative assistant

This year, I assisted the coordination of the 2019 Orientation as an administrative assistant involved in the recruiting of new staff and facilitating work schedules and payroll services. This included necessary experience in cash and budget handling as well as miscellaneous purchases of stock inventory.

Good campus, with lots of freedom to create your own teaching style. Good work life balance with all the amenities one could desire including onsite cafes and gyms.

badly managed place with great potential

basic services provided to staff is not well managed, access to research facilities is not well managed, but friendly staff. I learned that one has to arrange things on his very own, since there is no real support available.

Great job if you're in the right department for €35/class

I worked as a tutorial instructor for a slew of classes and lecturers in the business department at the kemmy business building and Schumann building. Only one lecturer had a bad reputation and her relationship with the head tutor made our lives pretty rough. I chose different teams and classes after that experience and have nothing but good things to say about everyone in that department minus those two individuals.
