    Pros

    Good working hours and conditions. All staff are willing to help and there is drive to make the student experience the best it can be. the staff here give a lot of time and effort to the job and make it a nice place to work.

    Cons

    There is a serious lack of opportunities for job growth and advancement. most higher level jobs are filled from outside leaving little chance for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your staff and give them the chances they deserve. encourage personal development and start paying them the wages they deserve.

    Pros

    Educational environment
    Flexible but at the same time strict
    Reliable job that will not let anyone down
    Location is nice and close to London

    Cons

    Repetitive routines that are too repetitive and finally it is a real pain to work with all the procedures before doing anything

    Advice to Management

    Make work more fun a place where everyone can enjoy and feel like they're working not because they're looking forward to the final salary but because they're doing something challenging
