I hear the medication to treat work-related stress, anxiety and depression works wonders if you are a recreational drug-user.
Truly biblical amounts of malcious gossip, relentless back-stabbing, living under the constant fear of losing your job and risking your family and loved ones being smothered with a pillow in the middle of the night by an unknown hooded assailant. Career progression is only achieved through being related or 'affiliated' with someone already in the mythical realm of being above salary Grade 5.

Good Facilities and front line collages alot of training and a nice student environment
Over baring ,uneducated, unresponsive and corrupt management. No equality within staff, more who you know than what you know and lots and lots of hearsay and un answered questions. No career progression or prospects.

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!
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.

Great team spirit Flexible working Good progression of career and development offered Good collaborative spirit for researchers in field Very competitive with other universities Constantly making top 20 of Times higer education lists
In academia hours can be long Work life balance has to maintained by yourself You need to be self motivated to get the work done University sites are spread across city from hospital to main campus. - not always a problem or con but something to consider Parking permits are like gold dust at hospital sites, so if you live close public transport or hospital hopper may be the mode of transport

Flexible working hours and reasonable management demands meant very little stress overall. Good opportunities for studying and developing further expertise. Decent pay.
Slow moving - career progression opportunities can be few and far between. It probably speaks good about the job that people at grade 8 and higher rearely leave, but the down side is at the lower levels career progression is near impossible regardless of performance.

Managers quick to take credit. No career progression past grade 5. Anyone who is anygood leaves. Senior managers many of them no team or even people skills. If bame no chance of going up the ladder.1

Really nice working environment. Staff are helpful, friendly and respectful. Good secure employment. Very interesting work.
Salary isn't quite as competitive as can be obtained in industry. In the field I worked in there was limited scope for career progression after a certain level.

Flexible working hours, good pay, friendly staff, a big team in campus services but everyone is lovely.
There is not much room for career progression in the job. The shifts are late, 6-11pm.
- 4.012 Sept 2020University AdministratorCurrent Employee, more than 10 yearsLeicester, England
I've worked at the University for a number of years. Salary is okay but there is no career progression without changing roles. Working environment is good and the people you work with are good and sociable.
Flexible working not offered to all employees. Decision making can be slow.
