    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at University of Birmingham as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The research and support staff are great, the academic standards are also top class

    Cons

    Poor estate services and terrible upper level management seem to leave a bitter taste on every contact. University seems more about profit than improving the staff/student/research experience.
