I worked at University of Durham

Pros

Beautiful city located in the North of England.

Cons

Bit isolated, and although Newcastle is near, it's still a bit too far.

    Pros

    Good area of the country for work/life balance Modern campus

    Cons

    Old boys club is prevalent in committees and promotion/recruitment schemes Slightly delusional management team who are far too proud of their modest achievements Too many senior staff not willing to lecture leaving junior staff overwhelmed with teaching committments.

    Advice to Management

    Foster young talent rather than recruiting "senior staff" looking for a final pay-day.

    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 Management

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