    Pros

    - Not much! Some good people

    Cons

    - Deluded and incompetent Senior Management who are focussed on their own careers and self importance. Many also try to manage by fear and thus alienate those working in their area but wonder why engagement is so low - genuinely clueless! - Shambolic and completely unrealistic approach to longer term strategy. The ‘Strategic Framework’ and associated compulsory indoctrination courses are woeful and... embarrassing - Internal processes (ordering goods, recruiting etc) largely not fit for purpose and impede on ability to do job - Increasing workload without potential for decent increase in reward/recognition - Many academics are trapped and want to leave but can’t due to family, location, state of HE generally etc - Almost constantly under some form of reorganisation meaning nothing gets embedded before it’s changed again. Such flux means difficult to do job - Not exclusive to this institution, but likely future devaluing of pension provision due to escalating costs - If you have any research ambitions, this is NOT the institution for you!

    They repeatedly don’t listen unless it suits their personal agenda so not much point!
