    Fits really well around your studies. Pays well and all the staff and management are very friendly and fair.

    Can be hard to get shifts, so your often not working as many hours as you would like.

    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.
