world class institution, second class facilities, bureaucratic but kind and supportive

Lecturer (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

ProsThe brand has global prestige. The people are generally top-notch. There is a surprising lack of arrogance amongst most. The institution offers many courses and programs for faculty development.

ConsTeaching load often too high to make much research happen during term time. Marking / grading process is ridiculously painful and archaic. Often concerns with standards and fairness mean that students are not learning as much as they should.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork to remove bureaucracy as much as possible. Pay more to faculty in order to retain them. Currently faculty often need to work extra jobs - like summer school or consulting - simply to make ends meet in London.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
