    Not much opportunity for students, but that seems to be changing

    I worked at Loughborough University part-time

    Pros

    The careers services started an initiative called Work@Lboro, which focuses on helping students to find work during term time in Loughborough, either on campus or off. This was not around when I first started. Though I was still lucky enough for find employment with the Sports Development Centre and the IT Services. Both jobs were on a casual basis, which was perfect for students since it gave me the flexibility to study.

    Cons

    The employers did not seem to take account that being employed on a casual basis means that I might not know every detail of the workings. This was particularly true for working at the swimming pool, and I found it frustrating when I was unreasonably expected to know everything about the facility when I only work there about once or twice a month.

    University must treat all staff members equally in every aspect!

    While some departments are well managed and environment is good, things can be better!

    I worked at Loughborough University as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice university, good facilities, Describe host city: Student life dominates the city
    Activities: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
    Nightlife, Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment

    Cons

    At the beginning of the course I wasn't confident at all when I talked in English, but after a few months I did feel more confident so I could speak to anybody almost in any situation.

    I have been working at Loughborough University

    Pros

    Excellent scenery and sporting facility. Quite a friendly environment with enormous amount of team work. State of the art engineering facility.

    Cons

    Job insecurity is high. Very quiet and lonely town. Little encouragement about good work done. Unnecessary training courses that waste productive time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    maintain the facility on ground. Encourage fellow researchers more about god work done. Be more concerned by researcher's well being.

    I have been working at Loughborough University

    Pros

    It was good work...hard working but well worth it and i believe that other should take the oppurtuniy to work for such a business

    Cons

    it was slow at times and they did not always take you seriously but then again you are just an intern so what can you expect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more appreciative of your employees they are willing to learn, and are capable as long as you push them as much as poss
