    I worked at University of Leicester part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working hours as you can choose your shifts, as well as a variety of shifts available to work on!

    Cons

    Would often apply for shifts but wouldn't get them despite management saying that they would assign shifts fairly. I'm not sure this was the case as some ambassadors would regularly work more than others.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, good pay, friendly staff, a big team in campus services but everyone is lovely.

    Cons

    There is not much room for career progression in the job. The shifts are late, 6-11pm.

    "Lecturer at University of Leicester"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Lecturer 

    I have been working at University of Leicester full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The normal benefits of working as an academic - flexible hours, predictable routines, etc. Academic staff are friendly to each other.

    Cons

    There is a push to increase student numbers to help the financial situation. The negative impact on staff is: - An ever-reducing quality of student. To increase numbers the entry requirements are lowered meaning we have to teach degree-level content to students that struggle to cope with it. - The Larger workload for marking, supervising etc. There is a large disparity in the pay and position of staff between departments and within departments. There are staff that have been around for a long time and were promoted during periods when promotions were easy. They clutter up the place on high salaries that block others. Teaching or Admin staff are treated like 2nd class citizens with no pretence that things should be any different. Leicester considers itself a research-led university and won't recognise that it's teaching and students support services that keep everyone in a job.
