Featured Review

I have been working at The Open University

Pros

Very supportive and excellent training. If you show motivation and drive they will support you and encourage you to grow. Direct managers work closely as do senior - everyone is present in the office... so great for networking. Being a large organisation there are opportunities everywhere - I stated in student recruitment with no goals - they have helped shape a career and in just over 3 years have moved up 3 grades! Brilliant holidays (45 day I think), and great office attitude (no blame only train!), they hold lots of office events like BBQs , bake sales, PIZZA, even trip abroad! I love working here so much I bought a house up here! Also AMAZING pension contribution at 19% ! I could go on!

Cons

Whilst we have excellent gender equality with many women in senior management roles, this goes down once you get to more senior roles The east campus canteen (run by an external company) is... hilariously frustrating! If you want to buy something expect to wait about 5 minutes whilst the staff unpack milk and have a catch up in the kitchen!

Advice to Management

Sometimes people need a stronger hand - for example of someone does something wrong or doesn’t understand something that’s than sending an email to the whole team about the process, approach the... individual directly. I’m sure this is not present in every team. There are certain managers though that are just brilliant- supportive and very approachable! A very senior manager took the time to provide detailed face to face feedback on a failed interview.
