    I worked at University of Manchester full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Can be a stimulating environment to be in. The work is worthwhile. A globally recognised institution. There are opportunities to develop.

    Cons

    Grown too large and lost touch with itself, its employees and the students. Reliance on IT systems has not been match by investment in the IT infrastructure leading to regular breaks in service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what it is that you need to do well and do it. The University isn't a business but it can benefit from being run more like one but not at the expense of the whole University.
