    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities to move around the University career-wise, from role to role. There is an inclusive and friendly atmosphere and the pension scheme is very generous.

    Cons

    Being a not-for-profit university, the salaries aren't as high as in the private sector. The turnover rate in my office is also quite fast.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to share upcoming roles around the University so that people can make horizontal and vertical moves, and to promote the best people for each job.
