    I worked at University of Essex as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    - university campus environment
    - close-knit community
    - generous employee packages
    - good transport links

    Cons

    - bureaucracy
    - many of the workers they are used to working at a public sector pace and therefore it can be hard to get things done quickly
    - the university suffers from a lack of communication between departments... and therefore it can be hard to utilise the benefits of so many intelligent individuals in one place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - create better communication between departments
    - encourage cross-department interactions
    - weed out the lazy and slow workers.
