    I have been working at University of Derby UK full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    * work life balance * friendly colleagues *supportive teams * facilities are fairly new and developed *accessible and easy to get too

    Cons

    * poor management style and managers who arent qualified to be managers *low morale overall *unprofessional *inconsiderate and uncompassionate *offload work onto you when someone has left *unsupportive * like being in a cult except your not part of it and only the managers are *clicky atmosphere and environment between everyone who has been a 'longstanding employee'

    Advice to Management

    Valuing people are empty words, start caring for people and reflecting the actual values the university supposedly delivers on, send the managers on training courses, you cant be a manager without having interpersonal skills and communication skills - that certainly isnt a manager.

    I worked at University of Derby UK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Good public facilities -community atmosphere -annual leave entitlement

    Cons

    -Resources and staff office space/environment complete opposite of the public outfacing facilities. -The ‘Strategic Framework’ is totally unrelatable to the average worker and the online induction courses felt like an indoctrination. -Internal processes with several lines of approval hold up work that needs to be done leading a simple task needing crisis management to complete for an unrealistic deadline. -... Increasing workload without the potential for a decent increase in pay. -Almost always in some form of restructuring with a feeling of uncertainty and difficulty to do the job. -Senior leaders are intimidating -High turnover of staff with many agency workers filling in the gaps
