Ambiente lavorativo professionale e stimolante

Rispetto al dipartimento dove lavoro posso dire che il personale e' molto competente, organizzato e attento alle esigenze degli studenti. C'e inoltre una relativa attenzione anche al wellbeing dello staff.

Head of ER not inclusive

Manager excluded me from conversations with rest of the team, did not make adjustments, went on holiday despite me asking twice for a meeting to discuss the stress I was feeling. I had not reached out for help previously.


Lovely people


Bullied by boss, disorganised, no induction

Productive and fun place. Easy going and great guidance.

Great atmosphere. Learnt alot of new skills and techniques. Would recommend for new students looking for summer work experience in labs. Good pay as well.

Unpleasant working environment

Would not return to work at QM, poor environment and even worse management. You get the standard perks associated with a university but not worth the stress.

Flexible and Fun

Lots of varied opportunities to support the university at London living wage. Plenty of training opportunities and I feel it really developed my skillset.

not productive and not fun

They alienate hardworking people and people who defend those who really work, including managers who try to defend them, a lot of discrimination on the part of those in management.


nothing good

Soul crushing isolation - it is what you make it though

A disclaimer first is that I started this job fresh out of university, from a different location, meaning it was all completely fresh.The content of the job is interesting, resources aren't lacking and you're given an office. However, that office will be your corner to be forgotten in.In short - if you died in your office, you'd be lucky to have anyone but the cleaner find you a year later. They will leave you to do your own thing in its entirety which can be good for some, and bad for others. For me, it was soul-crushing isolation on the basis that the next colleague closest to my age was approximately 20 years older than me. When you ask for help it's met with destain by some colleagues, who can be brutally callous.I think my conclusion is simple, if you are a senior in your career, know exactly what you want to do and are also totally fine with being completely on your own to work for up to weeks without any contact with other staff, then this job is perfect for you.


Very interesting content, flexible times to work as nobody is around to monitor you


Isolation, majority of staff are cold to you, no concrete support for staff to learn as its all a DIY experience

Decent no thrills will keep the bulls paid

Standard job nothing to get excited about. Great working environment as lots of young east going people on the Campus. Staff all very friendly and met some good people.

An enjoyable place to work

I enjoy the work and feel supported by the management team. I have flexibility in my work and feel I have a purpose through the work I do. I have a good working relationship and good, open communication within the area I work in. The role I am in provides valuable work experience and transferable skills within education.

Dynamic place to work

Queen Mary University of London is a friendly and dynamic place work. It provides the part for progression in some cases. Queen Mary is also one of the best paid employers (if not the best) within Higher Education sector.

Used to be great

I worked at Queen Mary for a number of years and despite many fumbling systems the culture and collaboration was excellent. Following the change in the senior executive this has negatively transformed. There is a culture of fear, secrecy, inconsistency across different areas, and a complete lack of interest in staff welfare. Current senior team attitude appears to be that all will be worked until they break or leave.


Lovely staff


Lack of staff welfare, lack of transparency, senior executive

Stressfull as it was academic led and very political

There are many bureaucratic hurdles to climb. The academic staff drive policy and often you must have contacts to help you. Professional services treated second to academic services.


Holidays and security


Politics and academic led

One of the worse companies I have ever worked for

I relocated to the Gozo (their Malta campus) and it has been one of the most unprofessional experiences of my career, to-date. I would not recommend working in this company to ANYBODY. Their management lacks leadership and they do not care whatsoever for the welfare and well-being of their staff.

Full of bullies

Bullying is widespread amongst staff. They perceive that the years probation for all new admin staff enables gives them the ability to do what they want without redress. Staff turnover consequently very high.
