How is management perceived at Plymouth University?

Pros

Wonderful campus, excellently positioned

Cons

Archaic management standards and a lack of policy and procedure made working for the UoP very stressful.

Advice to Management

Improve descending communication, provide better information on higher decisions to guide the work output. Put existing managers on courses to improve their style of management. I encountered ridiculously insulting micro management which did nothing for morale.
