    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Very happy to be working for this company, you get benefits such as additional days off surrounding Easter and Christmas and some discounts with local companies e.g. Derby Theatre and Georges's Fish and Chips.

    Cons

    You have to pay for parking and it is only valid at one site. However it is a small % of your salary so you don't really notice it.

    I have been working at University of Derby UK

    Pros

    Certain members of the academic and technical staff team are great to work with, they have integrity and a creative dynamism but these are fast disappearing under a culture of managers who are not interested in teaching and learning. I have worked with some brilliant students over the years, some fantastic creative individuals

    Cons

    Money driven and not led by a teaching , learning and research agenda. Academics have no say, we are the poorest of the poor and our opinions are not listened to. Bullying managers. No respect for the the curriculum and what the real role of the university should be. Dishonest to staff and students.
