    I have been working at De Montfort University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent facilities, both professional, social, and personal: Including a gym, cycle maintenance, computer maintenance and healthcare facility, multiple cafes and eateries, and the usual professional facilities you would expect from a university.

    A positive outlook to staff training and development.

    Continual development and improvement of campus buildings.

    Cons

    A lacklustre IT department who can be difficult to get a positive response from.

    A sometimes difficult to fathom administrative system (with regards to HR and middle management).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a review of technical support staff in specific locations, and of central IT management, as this department often feels unresponsive.

    Consider finding ways to reduce class sizes for practical lab sessions in the faculty of technology, as equipment (and sometimes staff) can be overstretched by lab groups of 15 or more.

    I have been working at De Montfort University as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Can contact my manager easily to ask for time off, which is normally approved given at least 3 days of notice. Was given training for all aspects of the job, and trust me there was lots of training.

    Cons

    Felt that the managers directly senior to me were being constricted by their managers... some ideas I thought were awesome was not approved
