I have been working at University of Durham

Pros

Good working environment, student centred environment. Building work currently taking place to modernise large sections of the campus, which improves the environment.

Cons

Lots of building work currently taking place, which leads to disruption of various parts of the campus and makes moving around difficult at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is good that the environment is being improved, which will enhance the student experience. More parking spaces would be good.

    Pros

    Intellectually challenging. Both staff and students are highly capable. Teaching is fun; it is good working with so many talented students
    Great student support system
    Beautiful City

    Cons

    Its pretty elitist in outlook and structure. If you don't publish in well-respected journals and/or get the right grants, then promotion is difficult. But then, if you are not publishing, then you shouldn't really be at Durham.
    This is a university for very bright and generally well-off pupils.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are doing a good job. People complain about cuts but the cuts are across the industry. Durham sets its performance targets so you know what you need to achieve.
