    I worked at University of Huddersfield full-time

    Pros

    There are none I can think of

    Cons

    Very poor organisation that is far too female led. You have a senior leadership team who are way out of touch with students, a chief exec too scared to change things, a chair who is far too involved and a board who are too scared to disagree with the chair.

      Pros

      Cons

      There is a deeply engrained bullying culture at the university which permeates down from the top level of management. People I've spoken to say it has always been that way.
