    I worked at Abertay University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some academics work hard and maintain the student satisfaction. Their success is in spite of management, not because of it.

    Cons

    Bullying environment. Incompetent senior managers with no genuine skills or experience. All the good managers that were there have left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave, and let some new blood in to get the University back to were it was under it's most successful Principal Professor King CBE.

    I worked at Abertay University

    Pros

    Lively academic community, small enough to allow cross campus courses to be developed and to get to know your students. Good academic and student support systems.

    Cons

    Parking isn't great but public transport is good. High teaching load and supervision of hons projects spread amongst few academic staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Despite the recent changes of leadership Abertay University remains a good employment prospect and still small enough an institution to allow for career progression and job satisfaction.
