I worked at University of Leicester full-time

Pros

Excellent environment where you have an opportunity to work with some dedicated, professional people

Cons

Top down management and many glass ceilings due to 'elitist attitudes of some managers. The gentle HR regime means that often people get away with a great deal in terms of sickness absence and conduct before being called to account

Advice to Management

Invest in infrastructure - especially IT. This will bring greater benefits than focussing on salary savings.

    Could see some of the symptoms of the general underfunding of higher education in the UK.

    Advice to Management

    More formal training prior to and during employment would be helpful.
