    Pros

    Surprisingly good research culture in places for an ex-poly, good (physical) work environment, good business and professional connections

    Cons

    Beware the performance management culture that sits just across the road from bullying - I didn't experience this myself but others have, there are some weak and over-promoted people in significant positions. Poor promotion prospects except for people in faddish and 'of the moment' initiatives. Oh, and this may sound like a little thing but the parking's rubbish. If you are teaching an evening class 'til late you'll still need to be parked up by 745. That makes for a long, long day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in touch with the people at the grassroots of the organisation
