    I worked at De Montfort University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A great place to work with great pople and excellent pay. The hours are also very flexible and suitable for students who need extra income

    Cons

    There were not really any negatives for working at DMU since the work can be easily tailored to suit the employee. If you live nearby it is easy to reach but if you live further out it can be slightly harder to get to

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really to add

    Recommends

    I have been working at De Montfort University part-time (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.
