    StarStarStarStarStar Former Enablement Assistant in Birmingham, England

    All staff used to get private health care but they took it away, rumour has it senior managers still get it. Benefits have gone drastically downhill from 5 years ago, and if based in the city centre you have to pay for parking which really adds up. Annual leave entitlement is good so long as you're actually allowed to take it (depending on job function you might be restricted to certain times of the year to take annual leave, but if the whole team is away its difficult to arrange)

    Basic since it was just a part time job free lunch, flexible hours and had some training and had help when needed.

    Great for holidays though no bonus offered. Private healthcare scheme is pretty good (tax deductible) and they value work/life balance.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Lecturer in Birmingham, England

    The medical benefits have been halved as the university is short of money. Overtime is very hard to claim and , in an attempt to save further money, staff have been told that claims for overtime for working at the weekend will now be rejected.
