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

    Pros

    - Open working environment - Easy commute using Tram, Bus and allocated parking - Opportunities for travel

    Cons

    - Higher management will discriminate against anyone who is white and/or male - Higher management will frequently block or sabotage your career progression if your political views do not align with theirs - The University as a whole refuses to develop and improve their services, more students join each year but staff levels diminish - Terrible pay, subpar support from colleagues - Not a meritocracy, better oppertunities and treatment will only present themselves if you are female, not white and are typically left leaning, you will be bullied by management unless you fulfil these requirements. - This has led to a workplace filled with unqualified individuals who push their work onto others to avoid doing it.
