      Racism and bullying unchallenged by Manager and HR

      Pros

      No positives about this place at all!

      Cons

      Was hired as the token BAME employee to meet their minimum quota. There is poor representation of BAME employees throughout this Russell Group University. It’s very embarrassing and I will never recommend this place to any potential staff or students. I’d rather send them to Coventry University! There is no progression opportunities whatsoever. From the very first day I was bullied by a lady who took pride in the fact that she worked in the same job for 18 years. It’s very concerning to have worked in a job for that long and not progressed to a more challenging role?! She was very cold and patronising towards me for no reason whatsoever. She tried to trip me up in front of my Manager and tell her I made mistakes without raising it with me. She was the first person I met on my first day and she didn’t as much as crack a smile. Racism at its best. Showing indifference without even speaking to a person. When I raised this with my Manager, no action was taken as she was inexperienced and felt intimidated by her too. HR are not supportive in any way. They all stick together with poor managers. The buildings are outdated and dilapidated. Warwick Business School is where all the money is poured into and it’s very obvious from the big shiny building.
