    I have been working at University of Nottingham full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    None, other than the fact that you can put "University of Nottingham" on your CV while looking for a better job elsewhere. I like my immediate department, but I have heard the horror stories of how other departments are managed.

    Cons

    The administration is a nightmare to deal with – especially HR, which holds a lot of mismanaged power over employees. Faculty haven't been paid on time, benefits are delayed, reimbursement and compensation for professional expenses are a constant battle with faculty administration and HR. When I arrived, the administration didn't even know I was coming (even though I signed the contract many months ago). It took weeks to get an email address, access to moodle, keys to my office, a computer for my office, etc. And, again, every little thing that should be a given for a new employee is a self-advocating battle you have fight with admin.

    The morale of the faculty here I could only best describe as "toxic." All of my colleagues seem to have complaint after complaint and most are constantly on the hunt for a new job, which is definitely telling.

    The placement of the university's campus is incredibly inconvenient, and don't believe the university website when it tells you that it has "easy access" to KL. It doesn't. Not at all. On average, it takes about 2 hours to get to KLCC via public transportation. It's a campus in the middle of nowhere.

    There have been numerous safety concerns on and off campus, and many students have reported sexual harassment, assault, and theft. The security on campus is pretty inept, and don't expect the local police to do anything to help.

    The salary is quite low for expats with good qualifications, and only allows for a lower middle class existence at best in KL.

    There is virtually no time and resources to do research, even though publications are the expectation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen seriously to the concerns of students, staff, and faculty. There is a great deal of mistrust leveled at management because employees and students do not see any improvements being made.

    Something has to be down about the Boustead partnership. They are trying to run a British university like a Malaysian company and there are all sorts of procedural and culture clashes that prevent effectiveness and efficiency.

    There needs to be a procedure in place for new employees – especially faculty coming from overseas. Maybe a checklist of things that need to get taken care of? This was the worst beginning to any job I have ever had, and I literally started looking for new jobs the second day I was at UNMC. The management needs to be proactive in making faculty feel welcome and can trust that the university is on their side. Right now, it is exactly the opposite of that.
