Great staff, good working hours.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at University of Leicester

ProsVery good at offering students with a variety of choices for specific diets such as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.

ConsThe pay side of things can be bad, sometimes they will forget to pay you and it can take a couple of weeks to resolve it.

Comfortable and nice to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at University of Leicester full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDepartments have good reputation, high-quality research. Career development courses. International environment. Nice library and library cafe to catch up with colleagues. Sports facilities nearby to break your day. The big park next door is nice for having lunches on hot summer days.

ConsSome managers self-centered without people management skills. If you value beautiful architecture, you won't see that on campus. The food on campus expensive and not good quality (luckily, shops and restaurants not far from the campus).

Advice to Senior ManagementShow that you value the input from employees lower in the academic hierarchy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to work

Third Line IT Support (Current Employee)
Leicester, England

I have been working at University of Leicester full-time

ProsFlexible working hours and reasonable management demands meant very little stress overall. Good opportunities for studying and developing further expertise. Decent pay.

ConsSlow moving - career progression opportunities can be few and far between. It probably speaks good about the job that people at grade 8 and higher rearely leave, but the down side is at the lower levels career progression is near impossible regardless of performance.
