I worked at University of Northumbria full-time (more than 8 years)Pros
Good pension, generous leave and flexi time.Cons
I used to love working in IT Systems at Northumbria, no more sadly. Under the current management regime, the old 'can-do' culture has been replaced by a culture of fear and intimidation.
Wages have been cut and entire pay grades abolished, good skilled staff with a wealth of skills and experience are being ignored and sidelined in favour of yes-men and brown-nosers, projects that could have been developed in-house have been outsourced at great expense, enterprise systems replaced by inadequate open source software, experienced managers forced out and replaced by clueless box-tickers...
Staff speaking out have been threatened with dismissal and legal action.
Not a nice place to work any more unfortunately.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Listen to your employees - they are the ones who know how the institution works.
Don't make change just for the sake of it.
Make use of the skills the department has.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
