Really good a little laid back for my liking. My manager was a little too hands off in my role and not really very tentative to my development. That was the only downside. But I wasn't there too long to so this comment maybe a little harsh. Otherwise UoB was excellent in terms of there facilities and the research work.

Excellent facilities, Zumba at lunchtime. Good work/life balance with 36.5hrs pw and extra 'discretionary' days tapped onto bank holidays. Collaborative culture, wonderful colleagues. However, poor job security with many fixed-term contracts.

As a 'casual worker', the environment is relaxing and I always am keen to work and represent the University - great place to work. A typical day for my job entails informing prospective students about the campus and course - giving them presentations and tours of the university.

Work is enjoyable, politics less so. Pay is not comparable to other local HE institutions. 'But we're Bath, you should be glad to work here' is the prevailing attitude.

This is a good place to work if you are looking for job security and a good work life balance as most departments offer flexi-time and the holiday allowance is above the private sector. The pace of work can be very slow and tasks repetitive. In admin or marketing roles in particular, there’s little room for advancement and training opportunities are almost none. People are promoted to management grades when they are not experienced enough, resulting in micro management and poor communication Communication is poor on a senior level and m about

A fantastic part-time role for students alongside their studies, gaining leadership and presentation experience. The open days were always well-attended and dynamic.

It is a great opportunity to work part time whilst you study at the University with least work load. The university has a friendly environment and many opportunities to learn, work and grow.

I enjoyed my time here a lot and loved being part of a team of interesting, clever, talented and witty people. There's flexible working and a pleasingly right-on culture. However, there are also some frustrating and rigid internal structures in the workplace. Employees' skills and knowledge aren't always utilised to the team's advantage, and repetitive menial tasks are often allocated to smart people, which wastes resources. Furthermore, there are regular directives from people in senior positions who don't necessarily understand the manifold challenges faced by those actually doing the work. Additionally, academics are revered and get the final say on what's published about their departments in onine and printed marketing materials, yet are not necessarily the best people to make editorial, proofreading or business decisions. Even so, they are permitted to do so, often arbitrarily and at the expense of logic or clarity. Overall, the university is a happy and positive place in which to work, offering good learning opportunities and a friendly, positive culture; but a less rigid structure would be beneficial. Would I go back if the right opportunity arose? Yes, because my colleagues were fabulous!

Great university. I didn't work as a staff member, just as an undergraduate doing lab work. I am very satisfied with both my course and the university as a whole.

I have been working at University of Bath full-time for just under 6 months involved in a range of multidisciplinary projects. Research culture is collaborative with opportunities to work with researchers in different departments.
Pros
Opportunity to work with a number of teams within the department.
Cons
Very quiet at times due to the holiday period.
