    I worked at Nottingham Trent University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generous annual leave entitlement and remuneration. Friendly and knowledgeable colleagues. Pleasant, quiet campus (Clifton). Spending on new buildings.

    Cons

    University management. Reactionary managment style - action only taken when a problem develops. Purchasing department. Precious few permanent roles if you initially start on a fixed-term contract. No continuity of teaching staff - happy to let experienced lecturers leave without a second thought.

    I have been working at Nottingham Trent University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It has a nice campus close to the city centre. Easy access via the tram. Friendly and helpful colleagues. Good support from administrative staff.

    Cons

    The life as a lecturer and/or researcher is made difficult by micro management and lack of trust in the professionalism of the staff (This may differ between departments).

    I have been working at Nottingham Trent University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    City centre location. Good pension (although more less so now). Some discounts available e.g. travel pass . Flexible working hours outside term time for lecturers. Good catering facilities. Next to a tram stop.

    Cons

    I suspect that it very much depends which department you work for. Staff morale in my department is low as a recent staff survey showed. New lecturers find it very tough to manage their workload.

    I have been working at Nottingham Trent University

    Pros

    Excellent campus and friendly, knowledgable colleagues. Good facilities and equipment to use when available. Easy access to campus

    Cons

    Everything really. Technical department suffers from rigamortis, there pace can only be likened to what is called reverse gear. Estates more interested in changing a light bulb than anything more difficult. This is so they can tick off their job sheets and make it look like they have done more work than they actually have. They also have their own bedrooms set up in derilict parts of the uni so they can have their afternoon sleep. Lecturer recruitment, what a joke, they are more interested in recruiting someone with 30000 pounds worth of funding even when they can't speak English very well. How much dothe students pay now, a typical class could be paying a million to the uni in a year but they don't care. Academics on over 1000 pound a week with no research and cannot hardly speak English, the students are getting a rough deal here. Paying people over 40000 a year to sign a piece of paper every few hours. The whole place is generally mad, everyone in their own little universe, feathering their own nest, majority just want do minimum to get by. I advise anyone wanting to study here. DONT
