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.
Flexible working, location, salary
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.
Lack of staff welfare, lack of transparency, senior executive
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
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.
Few weeks of Exam invigilation is enjoyable and they pay reasonably fair but its on temporary but i am looking for a career progression and security in job so it would be good if QMUL gives priority to its invigilators when any vacancy raised within it

Jobs at Queen Mary University of London
Very supportive staff and quite interacting and refreshing place to work. The student's Ambassadors are a bunch of intelligent, dedicated and fun-loving individuals who work as a team in projecting the image of the Queen Mary University of London.
Unprofessional workplace. No appreciation and respect. I've never work in a such dysfunctional place like the hospitality and catering department at QMUL. Higher management needs to lead by example. It seemed they were completely oblivious about what's going on below their level. Staff shortage or calling sick all the time. Low moral within the team. It's shocking that management don't seam to pay attention to the sign of poor performance and commitment by staff. If you're a professional personnel, don't waist your time here. Look elsewhere
30 days holiday
Long hours, no appreciation
There is a rampant culture of harassment across all levels of management. The Union are overwhelmed by the amount of complaints they receive and this became evident during the strike last year. Contracts are given, but these are based on a certain amount of hours and salary is eked out over ten months meaning you could be coming out with as little as 1000-1300 GBP a month to survive in a city like London. More and more courses are being rolled out to attract students but the quality of these is poor as staff are not given time to develop them properly and material design is lumped in with your hourly teaching rate. SLLF is a particularly stressful and demoralising department to work in and this will not change until there is a senior management change. After four years in this department, I was only one of a large number of people to leave. Staff turnover is very high.
There are so many wonderful things about working for the company. My favorite is probably the flexibility I have with my hours. I also love the company culture and enjoy working with everyone. A lot of employees love their jobs because it allows them to gain a lot of knowledge.
