Project Officer in Cardiff

Great place to work but not much scope to advance
Despite a somewhat elitist management culture (by no means the worst I have experienced), Cardiff University is a great place to work. Great work/life balance, good pension, great colleagues, great students. Only downside is the lack of career progression opportunities.

Really bad experience
Poor work life balance. Lack of management support. Toxic culture between colleagues. Job was nothing like described at the interview. A lot of people leaving.
Systems Engineer in Cardiff

Good company to work for in terms of work-life balance. However, the remuneration is generally below market-rate. This is slightly compensated for by large amounts of annual leave.
Sessional Counsellor in Park place

Excellent place to work
Management are professional and supportive. You receive recognition for your hard work and have opportunities to grow, develop and further your career. The diverse student cohort make it a challenging and fun environment to work in.
Team Leader in Cardiff, Cardiff

Very good employer with plenty of benefits
Very good employer although processes and systems can be slow and some areas are understaffed which slows things down further so your productivity can be affected.
