    I worked at Leeds Metropolitan University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good wage, great location, some lovely colleagues, fantastic places to eat on campus.

    Cons

    Horrible culture, bad practice sees no consequence and all are resigned to knowing nothing will improve
    No communication
    Bullying is prevalent
    Very low morale
    No one willing to speak up and any who do are subject to mobbing
    Not all departments have flexible working

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in new people so their enthusiasm will counter the mainstream indifference and don't allow staff to stagnate in their roles for years only to become apathetic, give them opportunities and praise where due. Listening to staff is great but taking action based on what they tell you is better.
