    I worked at University of Glasgow full-time

    Flexible working hours, staff was looked out for as much as was possible in the higher education constraints

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at University of Glasgow for less than a year

    Pros

    Very relaxed and seems to really care about staff's work/life balance, allowing flexible working if situations arise such as family care, appointments etc. I have learned so much since starting here, loads of opportunities to attend seminars and presentations to constantly expand knowledge. Really friendly and helpful staff (in my experience), feel very welcomed and supported

    Cons

    My only con is that I am a grant funded member of staff, which means my job is only secure for a certain length of time, otherwise I'd work here forever!
