Does University of Nottingham offer health insurance?

Pros

*reasonable colleagues and students *fair workload if you are not a manager *academic autonomy *good chance to build profile if you focus

Cons

*overworked or poorly deployed admin staff means more to do for academics at extra cost to university *changed health insurance will leave international staff out of pocket. Check the details *poor HR processes. Basically you need to constantly advance things yourselves *very little reward for hard work and protecting quality assurance *over audited in a dual sector.

Advice to Management

Constantly changing management constantly doing new reviews and audits on top of the high audit burden is exhausting. Create better forms of communication than "cascading". The university still does not have proper email lists. Support your heads of school. They hold up the place and fix the gaps created by low admin resourcing. Judge others as you would have them judge you. Submit yourself to a 360 review. Address red tape issues.
