I have worked at several universities and Warwick really stands out. I have had a really positive employee experience during my time here.
Positive environment, flexible working and lovely, approachable management and senior management. Good communication overall and you feel valued as an employee. My manager really inspires me, is positive, supportive and really pushes me to develop myself.
Graduate Trainee Engineer in WMG
Focus on Development and Supportive Workplace
Overall work is enjoyable and there is a strong focus on career development and learning. Colleagues, supervisors and managers are understanding, and there is a supportive culture in the office. Facilities and amenities are above average - both in the office and across the main campus. Good pension, holiday allowance and flexible working hours meaning a work/life balance is easier to control. Nice perks such as the Christmas party and statutory days off, and cafes and shops are easily accessible if needed.
Graduate Trainee Engineer in University of Warwick
Great place to work and much scope for development
Great place to work. Most staff are friendly and supportive, especially with career development and progression. Flexible working hours mean work/life balance is easier to control. Working facilities and amenities are more than suitable (kitchens, free hot drinks, on-site cafes/shops etc), along with the provision of tools needed to complete project work.Pension is excellent with large employer contributions. Workplace culture is generally supportive and collaborative. Odd exceptions though, much like any workplace.

Bullying is rife from management
Wouldn’t recommend to work here staff think they can boss you around, are very nosey, too much work for the time we have ! management are the worst their unprofessional, have favourite staff, talk about u and personal information to other staff, swear in front of you, hypocrites!! Stay away from this place
On-line EAP Tutor - temp in Home Based
It's all OK and most permanent staff are friendly and students are nice enough (and there are many returning tutors so that says something) but communication is often poor which results in a lot of confusion and time wasting. Temporary staff did not always feel valued; there were issues around pay (not the best for EAP work in any case, one month in arrears with no significant advance possible, late salary for some people with initial unhelpful response so lots of desperate emails to various staff members across the university to try and get answers/money, and pension contribution taken without warning so lots of time spent emailing after finishing the work to try and get this money back). When working on campus in previous years, accommodation was part of the package and there were perks like the use of the sports centre and a slap-up lunch at the end of the course. Working from home meant losing these benefits /part of salary package and there was no compensation for using own utilities and equipment.
