    I have been working at Leeds Metropolitan University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great staff to work with, central location, decent pay.

    Cons

    Poor communication, with changes steamrollered in from the top and staff expected to make it all work. A lot of (male) Yes Men recently promoted as workshop managers over better female competition (I'm male), Worst of all, recently even the slightest criticism by staff has been met with punishment by industrial tribunal, with threats of sackings if the staff talk to students about problems. It was a great place to work 2 years ago, but now it's beginning to resemble North Korea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication with staff can be terrible, and there is a growing sense of unease about job security. Management need to actually listen to staff when there is a problem, instead of mouthing platitudes and then wondering why it all went wrong when everyone told them it would happen.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
