    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at University of Leicester part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interesting job role and friendly supportive staff / managers

    Cons

    Work could be boom and bust, with not much happening one week, and sudden surge of work the next - based on deadlines for academic projects and funding bids, or sudden need to do lots of marking.

    I have been working at University of Leicester full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Leicester provides a flexible balanced workload, anice friendly atmostphere and great research opportunities. There are increasing interdisciplinary projects both within the university and with other universities in the UK and abroad. Leicester has a good environmental standard showing others the way forward. I have been working here for 3 years now while completing my PhD but before that I was a student for 4 years. It is a great university and they cannot get rid of me!

    Cons

    There needs to be more opportunities for career progression of junoir staff members (such as myself) and a more rigourous mentoring system. It is easy, especially for graduate teaching assistants, to get lost and forgotten about.
