Excellent organisation!
The University is a great place to work. All Campuses are next to public transport, and staff can also use the Campus bus. The management are really supportive and colleagues are very friendly.

Great potential but trying to do too much
Lots of colleagues who do their best everyday, but also many who don’t and/or are, frankly, unsuited for the role they’re in.I think that may be to do with the location of the campuses. It’s hard to attract the best talent to the area, and while the salaries are good for the local cost of living, they don’t necessarily well reflect the sector.I personal feel that the University tries to do much. As the “University of Opportunity”, it’s great that it wants to have as much on offer as it can for its students, but that’s a difficult target to reach in reality.There are no where near enough employees to thrive in every area, and all that results in is compromise after compromise and burnt out employees who end up becoming like the slackers they have to make up for.The continual budget cuts have decimated morale and progress. Each year every department has to make a saving, to the point where it now feels like we’re trying to do our jobs with both hands tied behind our backs.It’s a shame as it’s a lovely place to work, and most colleagues are friendly, but it’s dragged down by a lack of competence from a frighteningly large number of employees, a lack of budget to innovate in key areas, and a workforce who are becoming increasingly disillusioned.If you can overlook these issues, then it’s a great place to earn decent pay, play your part and finish on time every day. However, if you’re ambitious or want to be a driver for change, then I’d recommend looking elsewhere.I hope things can turn around from here, I really do.

Highly competitive environment which can be stressful
A bottom ranked university with big ideas but do not have the infrastructure nor the management talent to take this university any further. The workload has increased dramatically over the last number of years and where our department scored well in the subject league tables, this has now dropped dramatically.Management is a huge issue in the university with many people in positions that do not reflect their qualifications. Professors for example with all but no peer reviewed papers. Individuals in management with poor ideas and initiatives that lead no where, are are not properly evaluated which lead to a tired, and stressed work force.
