The most useful review selected by Indeed
As an hourly-paid lecturer I lacked some of the relative, ling term job security of full-time academic staff. HPLs tend to get used when and where necessary. I might have led modules, held seminars, given guest lectures (when the full-timers wanted a day off!), or any combination of the above. The work load can fluctuate. Unless it interrupts post-graduate research, say Yes to as much work as you can.
Flexibility and a good hourly rate
They dropped me without notice.
Making cuts everywhere and getting rid of staff. Worked in the Timetabling Team and took 2 months off sick leave after being bullied and harassed by the Timetabling Officer. There was an investigation and she was found guilty of all accusations. I was resigned and was compensated.
Canteen is value for money
No social culture
Productive and good place to work. Good working environment. Fair working practices Good policies and work incentives Wide range of diversity among employees Good work ethics which encourage independent working and multicultural policies
personally didn't enjoy the experience,the pay was good enough to stay but not long enough to lose your mind.. also if your from an ethnic background be prepared for the indirect racial slurs. for example calling you by "shaniqua " even though you name is on your desk and its no where near that name lol just a heads up seeing as i cant avoid reviewing,

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
A great place to work but there is little or no progression. Managers are nice and friendly and everyone gets along really well. Certain days are different as you get to do other stuff while on other days it's just about doing repetitive task.
Work/life balance, good benefits
Lack of job security
LondonMet has always provided career progression for me, I started working here after my undergraduate course and have never left. I have incredible colleagues and it is fun workplace, especially because it is a teaching focused institution and they support your professional development.
