All of the academic staff are completely unqualified and walk around calling themselves Professors and Associate Professors, etc. Everyone is constantly looking out for themselves, how they can do as little work as possible, and throwing everyone else around them under the bus to mask their own failures.

Manager is always working from home. Bullying is regular if your face doesn't fit. People are passive agressive. When bullying does get reported the victim gets punished due to Management having a lack of spine.
Pros
You get most weekends off
Cons
Bullying is regular, hours are rubbish, People Team are useless.

People Team (HR) is the worst team in Coventry University to work. Not sure about other departments but there's a high turnover and i reckon its the same story in all of the University.

As with all big companies, money is a priority and this sometimes affects workplace experience. Sometimes felt undervalued and overworked, but good working atmosphere overall.

My very first experience as a personal coach in the sports industry gave me a massive understanding of human needs and different kinds of personalities. Therefore I become passionate about business psychology in order to develop my knowledge about coaching, leading and inspiring people. From the beginning, I was trying to combine my passion with my personal work. In order to do so, I started to work as a business coach and university lecturer.

The workplace culture is most probably the best I've ever seen. Everyone treat the others with respect, regarding your background or any other thing..

This was an unpaid position and was good for experience but I wouldn't work there full time as they don't offer any full time or paid positions to students

All though for a short time i loved working here, the team were fantastic and lots of support in your job role. Most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people and the challenges i faced each day.

I started at coventry after the collapse of GSM. Coventry has been good at mapping out their modules to correspond with which modules I have already done.

I'm a student here it is pretty good, not enough contact hours however so it is hard to maintain successful relations with lecturers sometimes. Bar that, the university is good

It was very good. Nothing I can complain about. My supervisor was very helpful and the environment and facilities were also very good. I learnt a lot about hardware and software in the loop simulations and I am very satisfied from the overall experience.
