Domestic

Going here as a domestic was the worst ever! You cant talk to no one , whilst at work even though you get your work done. Its like been in a nursery. But its ok for managment to yap through out there shift about holidays. House decoration. And allsorts. Job role has gone to one of their heads i think. Talking down at you constantly. Walking on egg shells incase another employee talks to me. Absolute discrace. I loved my job. But hated the manager, think twice about a job here if you dont want to be treat like a baby and treat like your below them lot in the office. Im far better than that. And so are you. Managment needs to be changed if they dont want high turnover of staff. At CLANNY HOUSE

Pros

Good wages, good work times

Cons

Bad, lazy, contradictive manager

Good place to work at

I had a very lovely time working at Sunderland, the working hours is very cleverly set, as I was a marketing officer at the time, my starting time was 7, so we have more time to contact the connected parties with the agents in China, thus make the job was more efficient.

Παραγωγικό κι ευχάριστο εργασιακό περιβάλλον .

Μπορεί ένας χώρος εργασίας να μας κάνει πιο δημιουργικούς και παραγωγικούς, παρά τις καθημερινές εύλογες δυσκολίες ; Είναι δυνατόν να μας βοηθά να συγκεντρωθούμε καλύτερα και να χαλαρώσουμε από το καθημερινό άγχος; Κ ι όμως θεωρώ ότι είναι εφικτό , διότι προσωπικά το βίωσα ! Η εξαιρετική συνεργασία με τους συναδέλφους μου, βοήθησε απόλυτα να προσαρμοστώ, μειώνοντας σε μεγάλο ποσοστό, τ όποιες δυσκολίες. Η δημιουργικότητα, αποδοτικότητα και παραγωγικότητα των εργαζομένων, όπως και το κλίμα καλής συνεργασίας έχουν ενισχυθεί σε μεγάλο βαθμό, και με τον κατάλληλο σχεδιασμό του χώρου εργασίας. Οι χώροι εργασίας, συνυπάρχουν με τους χώρους μελέτης. Σπουδαστές αλλά και επαγγελματίες που το αντικείμενό τους απαιτεί να μελετούν, να διαβάζουν, να γράφουν και να ερευνούν, μπορούν να βοηθηθούν σε μεγάλο βαθμό από το κατάλληλα διαμορφωμένο χώρο. Αυτό, προσωπικά εμένα, ως " ξενόφερτη " με βοήθησε απόλυτα και μ ωφέλησε , εφ όσον είχα τη δυνατότητα ν συνυπάρχω κοινωνικά, με διαφορετικές ηλικιακές & ακαδημαϊκές ομάδες σε ένα Πολιτισμικό περιβάλλον.

Υποδειγματικό περιβάλλον εργαασιας

Η ευκαιρία που μου δόθηκε ν εργαστώ στο πανεπιστήμιο του Sunderland, όπου και φοίτησα, ήταν εξαιρετικά διδακτική ! Με την ενασχόλησή μου στο HR dep, είχα , επί καθημερινής βάσεως την ευκαιρία να ζήσω εκ των έσω, να ενημερωθώ και να κατανοήσω τον παραγωγικό ιστό του Πανεπιστημίου και της Ακαδημαϊκής Κοινότητας, στο συνολό τους. Τοιυτοτρόπως εκτίμησα την εργασιακή προσπάθεια όλων οσων εργάζονται, προκειμένου, να παραχθεί σωστό αποτέλεσμα, τόσο από την πλευρά των καθηγητών , αλλά και τη δυναμική της Διοικήσεως του Πανεπιστημίου , σ όλους τους τομείς που προηγούνται και υποστηρίζουν τ όλο οικοδόμημα και την εικόνα του Ιδρύματος . Δεν ένιωσα ούτε μια μέρα, πίεση από τους συναδέλφους μου ανεξαρτήτως βαθμού και θέσεως .Το αντίθετο έχω να τονίσω, ΜΌΝΟ την εξαιρετική συνεργασία μαζί τους και την προθυμία, να με βοηθήσουν να προσαρμοστώ στις εργασιακές απαιτήσεις, ώστε ν αποδώσω τα δέοντα, αλλά συνάμα να μ εντάξουν και κοινωνικά στη δική τους οικογένεια. Με χαρά , θα ξαναγυρνούσα κοντά τους. Αυτό θεωρώ είναι τ υπέρτατο δώρο που έλαβα τα χρόνια που πέρασα τόσο στη φοιτητική όσο και στην εργασιακή κοινότητα του Πανεπ του Sunderland, ήτοι το να κουβαλώ μόνο θετικές αναμνήσεις κι εμπειρίες ζωής , πέρα των γνώσεων. !

Pros

Δυνατότητα ενημέρωσης κι εξέλιξης !

Cons

Staff let down by poor executive.

Staff (and students) are lovely. Staff and Academics often work in a fraught environment with little or no support. Becoming worse as cuts take place.

Pros

People around you

Cons

Professional working environment

A typical working day would involve drafting correspondences to clients and opponents, conducting interviews and managing new and existing cases with my colleagues and superiors. During my time there I learnt much about how to conduct myself properly in a professional environment, in particular a legal setting. The management were experts in their field and more than capable or supplying knowledge when asked. This also contributed to the workplace culture, as the relationships between the student advisers and the staff was both friendly and very professional.

Pros

Wide range of work

Cons

Long hours

Researcher review

A researcher review could be different than other staff members. For me most of the days used to be similar to each other. Coffee, summarise research papers, validating data and so on. Time management is a key in this job. Thus I gained a lot of skills by designing my week days. I used to enjoy when I knew that a paper I worked on was accepted for publication.

Fun place to work

Although my job was secure the fast turnaround of staff meant that I was constantly training other staff meaning that my job suffered as a consequence. I enjoyed the recruitment side more than the training side and felt that it was a continuous cycle.

Pros

Decent pay structure

Cons

Long Hours
