Satisfying environment. Some of the best UK students. Salary good.

Professor (Current Employee) Durham, England

ProsGreat very pretty small town - good facilities for kids. Reasonable emphasis on research and bureaucrats can be mostly avoided!

ConsThe organisation is a bit centralised with edicts coming from the centre. Remedial classes required for incoming students but this is true for the whole UK now. A bit too much focus on the "student experience".

Advice to Senior ManagementMy main advice would be to let the experts you hire be expert. Also often the University only tries (and fails) to retain the best people once they have job offers from elsewhere - try harder to retain people before they feel they even need to look elsewhere.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    UK universities are a good place to work

    Lecturer (Current Employee) Durham, England

    I have been working at University of Durham

    Pros: Intellectually challenging. Both staff and students are highly capable. Teaching is fun;… Cons: Its pretty elitist in outlook and structure. If you don't publish in well-respected journals and/or get the right grants, then promotion is difficult.… Advice to Senior Management: Management are doing a good job. People complain about cuts but the cuts are across… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
