    I worked at University of Derby UK full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    No longer exist in current environment.

    Cons

    I enjoyed my time working at the University (28 Years), however, the best decision I ever made was to move on (no choice in the matter as it happens). I feel sorry for the staff that are currently left at this place. Recently advertised post for 50 plus new staff in Admin would be for the staff that took Voluntary redundancy, this consisted of quite a few staff that had been at the university for a number of years. I suspect that, like myself there was not a lot of choice for them as the uni needed younger staff to mould into their toxic work environment.
    Lip service paid to stress in the work place, values and behaviors twisted to suit management needs at the time, staff penalized for not being 100% commited (forget your social life). Current Exec has got rid of all original exec members (there one day, gone the next). All managers have their own version of the University’s agenda, lots of bullying going on at all levels. I’m glad I worked at the University when it was a pleasant place to work.
    Avoid this place at all costs...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of current Exec leader, she doing the University no favours.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Derby UK.

    Interview

    Very basic questions, quite impressed with very simple customer service skills. I was considered for a more senior role but did not consider my experience to be supervisory enough.
