    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    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
