I worked at University of Birmingham part-time (More than a year)
Brillant place to work. Lovely university campus and city. Did my PhD and post doc here. Highly recommended. Brillant people, lots of support and opportunities available.
Biosciences building a bit dated but situated in the centre of campus. Because the university is located close to hospital the traffic is awful getting to and from work. Also parking is a major issue however the train station is very close and convenient.
I worked at University of Birmingham as a contractor (More than 3 years)
Flexible time, salary increases every year. Got to work in research and meet very interesting people internationally.
Short contract, no way of staying there, very competitive environment, did not get to work in what I wanted but only got to do a little bit of everything that nobody else wanted to do (including taking care of students).
Advice to Management
People are very unhappy in stressful and competitive environments.
I worked at University of Birmingham full-time (More than a year)
The campus is pretty and close to Birmingham
Worst university I've ever worked at (Ive worked all over world). Biosciences is totally sexist and completely dysfunctional. Horrible experience.
I have been working at University of Birmingham as a contractor (Less than a year)
The research and support staff are great, the academic standards are also top class
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.

Good equipment, great people. My supervisors were pretty good and work waas flexible as you like
IT are a pain! You might have to buy your own computer to get stuff done...
Advice to Management
