    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Edinburgh Napier University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Holiday entitlement and sick-pay benefits

    Cons

    Management turnstile constantly revolving therefore no clear direction. No career progression or training of relevance to role. A bureaucratic meritocracy where hard work goes unrewarded and creativity and talent largely is ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Management in my department bailed to the last. The new batch should listen to their staff and act on their recommendations.
