Great Managers

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Worked at a General assistant in the coffee shops and food courts. Lovely workplace. Staff and managers are very polite and treat you with respect which is nice. Some senior members can be judgemental and gossipy which is natural. Pay is good but given current events is not enough. I place no blame on them for this though. Mix of full timers and students who were friendly enough.

Good volunteering experience

This was a good experience alongside doing a degree. I enjoyed listening to students and seeing them express their thoughts. There was a good level of discussion and interest in improvement and progressive reform about degree programmes.

Terrible systems, nice staff

Processes from the dark ages, friendly staff who are overworked. Lots of good will from staff.Seems to be a lot of turnover due to low salary and high workload.

Great Project, spoiled by inexperienced management

Worked with a talented team, who with the right guidance, could have delivered anything. Management, is poor, unrealistic and blinkered in it's approach to everything. My project took a turn for the worse when its management structure was unsupported, and highly paid management consultant types were emplyed.


One of the best teams I have ever worked with


Blame culture, and failure to understand project

Friendly and active teaching

Brilliant experience working with the staff at CCCU. A great and inspiring approach to teaching. Looking out for every individual student's needs. Help provided to ensure that I settled in. Creative freedom to apply my research into student's learning and practice.

Bad Place To Work

Bullying managers, corrupt department. No protection for staff who make unofficial complaints about incompetent managers who cant manage, but can bully effectively and make your life a misery whilst you are there to the point where you feel the only choice you have is to leave . Managers who lie professionally and get away with it because the upper management are too weak to address long standing incompetence. Not a good experience at all ! ! ! .

Good place to work

Worked here for 9 years. Good company culture. Cared about their employees. Only negative is communication from senior management to staff, but thats probably true about all big companies.

Productive, supportive and fun workplace

Welcoming and inviting atmosphere. I really enjoyed my time there, management and other employees were extremely supportive and the culture and ethos of the university is fantastic.

Competitive and hardwork, yet rewarding.

My time working for CCCU was enjoyable, however the area is expensive to live in so higher wages are required to make working there long term sustainable.

Graduate - American Studies

I have just graduated in BA (Hons) American Studies, and I have achieved amazing things there. It was my course that spans many areas of the humanities in relation to the U.S. - e.g. film, music, children's literature - that made me want to work in the field of public arts and arts education; working with museums and media organisations.

Great place to work

Great place to work, with great people I was assisting the team in managing over 4,000 dedicated volunteers throughout the South-East of England, the role gave me a passion for promoting STEM subjects to the next generation. My main task is to promote and fill all voluntary roles within schools and other educational establishments for maximum impact. I used effective people management, marketing and sales skills to promote STEM as an organisation and to ensure all volunteering requests from schools are met. I have a Responsibility to follow key processes to ensure that stringent compliance and health and safety checks are all firmly in place before each activity. I have taken ownership of various projects, such as an event for over 5,000 children ensuring all targets were met and that a beneficial outcome was reached for all participants. .
