    I worked at University of Derby UK full-time for 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.

    I worked at University of Derby UK full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility, salary, parking on site ( you do have to pay)

    Cons

    Workload - more and more is asked of you. If a member of the team leaves, their work is off loaded on to the others in the team and it takes a while to recruit a new staff member.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic with hours on workload planner and staff need time to do research.
