secretary for the Clinical Trials Unit in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear

Interesting place to work
The University is a great place to work and I was sad when my contract came to an end. I had weekly meetings with my manager and I was able to raise any matters of concern. She was always supportive and helpful. My job role was very diverse and no two days were the same. The work culture is respectful and inclusive of people from all backgrounds, nationalities and cultures - something which they should be proud of. Many companies/organisations could learn from copying their model.

Unprofessional, blame culture, disorganised
Some managers think the university is their territory and they have the rights to behave and speak in a way they like! They behave you like a vehicle rather than a human and they proudly say it to your face. They make you unsafe and sick.Some managers are not accountable and committed at all and they expect you to do their jobs and if you resist they disrespect, shout and degrade you. An obvious example of having lack of knowledge and having a non-scientific mindset and approach. This probably is because that they are not well trained.

Unprofessional - blame culture
Unprofessional managers - if they make errors they will attempt to just blame other members of the team. Shout and swear in meetings. Cause unnecessary stress and pressure making a typical work day far less productive. Complete lack of communication. Worst job I have ever had.
Student Ambassador in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear

fun and relaxed work-place thats also fast placed
My role here was completely student based. They sent out hours which they needed to be worked and we could choose when ands for how long we wanted to work. They understand and are empathetic about how university education needs to come before their jobs. Employees and PhD students are lovely and are relaxed in their ecxpectations, because of this a good atmosphere was formed, but the work is very important and can be incredibly fast-paced. My job was showing round prospective students, in the mornings they were given talks on what to expect in the University's engineering department and we were asked to give our personal experiences as students and advice. There were mixer lunches where the prospective, students and guardians mingled with student ambassadors and university staff. In the afternoon, the students went around 3 different stages, labs, induction talks and tours. I myself, conducted labs for students and talked to them one-to-one about student life and answered any questions they had. After that there was one last mingling session and then we dispersed.

Good Working Experience
I have generally had a good experience working at Newcastle. My line managers have been very supportive and pro-active. However, colleagues experiences suggest the work culture and experience can be highly variable dependent on your line manager/PI.
